The Next Feast...
author of "The Journey North" at Kimbel's in Wachesaw.
"The American Civil War still captivates our interest. As the war entered its third summer, the Confederate army met the Union army in July 1863, in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. During the second day of this three-day battle, some of the most brutal fighting occurred at Little Round Top. This story describes the bloody fighting that took place between the Union's 20th Maine and the South's 15th Alabama. It also describes how two fictional soldiers meet on Little Round Top and become friends. This meeting portrays those that often took place between opposing soldiers. Random acts of compassion during a brutal war. These soldiers pushed aside their differences to become friends. In an act of kindness, one of these soldiers initiated their friendship, while the other cemented their friendship by a personal sacrifice he made later. It was a friendship that would last for years."
