The latest work by the prolific novelist Harry Turtledove centers on one the most controversial engagements to occur during the Civil War, the 1864 battle at Fort Pillow. While Turtledove narrates this fictional account from multiple perspectives, the alleged massacre of black Unionists who helped defend the garrison from Confederate infantrymen remains the focal point.
