A Historical Novel

by Michael Eisenhut

       Brothers of War, The Iron Brigade at Gettysburg is an epic historical novel about the American Civil War. The story not only puts readers into the middle of the Battle of Gettysburg, but also makes them feel the emotions of the soldiers who fought there. Meticulously researched, Brothers of War is a historical fiction based on actual brothers who fought as members of the famed Iron Brigade, particularly the Nineteenth Indiana Volunteer Infantry regiment.

       The main characters are two brothers, James and Solomon Whitlow, and their squad within the regiment. One of the squadmates, Elijah Hawkins, nicknamed ‘Hawk’, has a mysterious past and has a somewhat cynical view of the conflict. After two years of war, an environment in which Hawk seems to thrive, Hawk realizes his only true family is the small squad that has gone through so much together. When the squad quarrels with an antagonistic sergeant, Hawk takes matters into his own hands. It isn’t until late in the book that Hawk’s mysterious and violent past is revealed.

       Henry, on the other hand, is a Quaker who was talked into fighting in the war for a cause that becomes less clear as the brutality of the fighting continues. Struggling with thoughts of desertion for several weeks, matters come to a head for Henry during the first day of battle at Gettysburg.

       Readers will sense the emotion and feel as though they are among the soldiers marching, camping, and fighting in this epic story of the American Civil War.
