Go Where The Fire Is Hottest
8/2/2009 9:08:29 PM    [ Flag as Inappropriate ]

As Confederate Colonel Arnold Elzey was bringing up his brigade at First Manassas, General E. Kirby Smith galloped up and ordered him to ďgo where the fire is hottest.Ē This is exactly what Colonel Elzey did, placing Private William S. Prentiss and the 1st Maryland Battalion on the flank of the Federal army. Their attack made a significant contribution to Southern victory in the first major battle of the war. Iíve adopted Smithís shouted command as the name for my blog. Itís intended to help us maintain our spiritual connection with the boys in blue and gray who fought those battles so long ago.

Two Brothers: One North, One South was written to be an even-handed account of the Prentiss brothers and all participants, both North and South. In my opinion, those who served honorably on either side in accordance with their beliefs were American patriots and contributed to building the great nation that we are today. Itís our common history and heritage and should be treasured in its entirety.

Go Where The Fire Is Hottest journals my experiences and knowledge gained since writing the book. Please come along and enjoy the journey with me.
