Books, Jack Hinson's One-Man War: A Civil War Sniper
A quite plantation owner, Jack Hinson watched the start of the War with disinterest. After Union soldiers seized and murdered his sons, placing their decapitated heads on the gatepost of his estate, Hinson could remain indifferent no longer. This remarkable biography presents the story of a lone Confederate sniper, who at the age of 57, waged a personal war on Grant's army and navy. This meticulously researched and beautifully written work is the only account of Hinson's life ever recorded.
