Victims. [BOOK CLUB KIT] : a true story of the Civil War ; Phillip Shaw Paludan.


"In January 1863, in the isolated mountains of western North Carolina, Confederate soldiers captured and murdered thirteen victims they suspected of being Unionist guerrillas. First published in 1981, Victims traces the lives and personalities of both killer and victims, illuminating the pressures that can bring men anywhere to commit atrocities more heinous than war itself."-Amazon
