Michael palmer is a good man, a family man. But honor and duty push him to leave his comfortable life and answer the call from Abraham Lincoln to fight for his country. This "citizen soldier" learns quickly that war is more than the battle on the field. Long marches under extreme conditions, illness, and disillusionment challenge at every turn. Faith seems lost in a blur of smoke and blood...?nd death. Michael's only desire is to kill as many Confederate soldiers as he can so he can go home. He coldly counts off the rebels that fall to his bullets. Until he is brought up short by a dying man holding up his Bible. It's in the heat of battle at Gettysburg and the solemn aftermath that Michael begins to understand the grave cost of the war upon his soul. Here the journey really begins as he searches for the man he was and the faith he once held so dearly. With the help of his beloved wife, Jesse Ann, he takes the final steps towards redemption and reconciliation.Using first-hand accounts of the 14th Connecticut Infantry, Karl Bacon has crafted a detailed, genuine and compelling novel on the 150th anniversary of the Civil War. Intensely personal and accurate to the times, culture, and tragedy of the Civil War, An Eye for Glory may change you in ways you could have never imagined as well.

Professional reviews

"Dick Hill narrates this Civil War story with the gruffness one would expect from its main character, veteran Michael Palmer. Both author and narrator have done their research to bring Palmer to life in the listener's mind. Bacon offers an account of life as a soldier in the Union Army during the Civil War, as well as vivid descriptions of the landscapes that soldier found himself in. Hill narrates with the passion of one who has been there. His voice quivers with excitement as Palmer recounts the killing of Rebels and becomes a hush when the former soldier questions his own motives and faith. Hill's rendering of this first-person novel makes both story and character fully credible--and better than reading the book in print. T.D.
