Description (from the publisher): 
A Multi-Cast Production / Set in New Orleans in the years after the Civil War, A Separate Country is based on the incredible life of John Bell Hood, arguably one of the most controversial generals of the Confederate Army--and one of its most tragic figures. Robert E. Lee promoted him to major general after the Battle of Antietam. But the Civil War would mark him forever. At Gettysburg, he lost the use of his left arm. At the Battle of Chickamauga, his right leg was amputated. Starting fresh after the war, he married Anna Marie Hennen and fathered 11 children with her, including three sets of twins.

About the author (from the publisher):
Robert Hicks has been active in the music industry in Nashville for twenty years as both a music publisher and artist manager.

He is the author of The Widow of the South.

I'd like to win this book. We live in NE TN and I visited the Carnton Plantation with my son's class. Mr. Hicks' THE WIDOW OF THE SOUTH was a very good book. This sounds like another story of an exceptional individual.
