Although it is a work of fiction, Bright Starry Banner relies heavily on primary source material to recreate one of the most destructive engagements to take place during the Civil War, the two-day battle of Stones River. Carter constructs fictional conversations but adheres to the historical facts, as he focuses on the men who actually participated in the battle as well as the military maneuverings that ultimately led both North and South to declare victory.
