About the Author and Book: Jeff Shaara is a New York Times best-selling author of war novels. Drawing on comprehensive research and his own intimate knowledge of the Vicksburg Campaign, Shaara once again weaves brilliant fiction out of the ragged cloth of historical fact. From the command tents where generals plot strategy to the ruined mansions where beleaguered citizens huddle for safety, this is a panoramic portrait of men and women whose lives are forever altered by the siege. By giving voice to their experiences at Vicksburg, A Chain of Thunder vividly evokes a battle which had an outcome that still reverberates more than 150 years after the cannons fell silent.
Location: Highland Park United Methodist Church, Wesley Hall
