Whalens cowardice caused Buckys best friend to be wounded at Antietam, and now the rascal brought shame on the whole regiment by attacking the farm girl Sarah Pfaff. Little did Bucky realize when he rescued Sarah that soon she would fill a major void in his life. When the men and boys of the Bucktail Regiment enlisted in 1861, they envisioned a glorious, heroic masterstroke that would end the war in short order. Now, more than a year and four vicious battles later, they were squared off against the Rebels at Antietam Creek. Although the Union forces fought tenaciously in the cornfield at Bloody Lane, and at Burnside Bridge, the best they could secure was a costly stalemate. The steely Bucktails, though, captured some good from the tragedy by maintaining their much-tested resolve. This third book, The Bucktails Antietam Trials, details the dreadful losses suffered by the Union army as well as the individual calamities faced by the members of Bucky Culps squad.
