Rebel Grey: Poems of Confederate History tells through the lyricism of poetry the rich history of courage, passion and strength that are the heritage of the Confederacy. This collection of original poetry depicts some of the forgotten Confederate battles and heroes, such as the imaginative Colonel Richard Thomas Zarvona and the horrific Battle of the Crater, as well as the famous Stonewall Jackson and the battle incorrectly known as the battle between the Monitor and the Merrimack. These poems and many more included in this book appeal to both young and old by captivating the imagination and painting a living picture of history within one’s mind.
