Bob Armistead, author of this alternate history novel, places the Civil War's fate squarely on the shoulders of Vicksburg's Confederate defenders and the relief forces commanded by Nathan Bedford Forrest. When the Union siege is broken, Tennessee returns to Confederate control and Lincoln falls in depression. The Union president recovers his health, but in May 1864 a final Confederate offensive induces him to sue for peace.
