Bernard Cornwell Rebel

SYNOPSIS

In the summer of 1861 the hastily raised armies of North and South stood on the brink of America's Civil War. Rebel tells how a northern boy, Nathaniel Starbuck, came to be fighting for the southern cause at the battle of Bull Run. Estranged from his Boston family and jilted by the girl for whom he has abandoned his university studies, Starbuck is rescued by the quixotic Washington Faulconer, a rich landowner who is raising his own elite regiment to fight against the Yankees. Starbuck repays Faulconer's kindness by enlisting in his Legion, even though the price of that enlistment could mean righting against his own people. Other men face similar dilemmas and all have a story to tell - from Faulconer's son Adam, wrestling with his conscience, to village schoolmaster Thaddeus Bird, the rake Ethan Ridley and the hardscrabble hill farmer Thomas Truslow, the only real soldier in the Faulconer Legion.
