Meet the Author: Frye Gaillard. Frye will discuss his new book Journey to the Wilderness. Books will also be available to sale and signing.
"On the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, award-winning author Frye Gaillard reflects on the war -- and the way we remember it -- through the lens of letters written by his family, including great-great grandfather, Thomas Gaillard, and Thomas's sons, Franklin and Richebourg, both of whom were Confederate officers. As Frye Gaillard explains in his deeply felt introductory essay, he came of age in a Southern generation that viewed the war as a glorious lost cause. But as he read through letters collected and handed down by members his family, he confronted a far more sobering truth."
