Horrors of History: Ocean of Fire

By: T. Neill Anderson

Based on one of the more controversial events of the Civil War.

It's February 1865 and the end of the American Civil War is in sight. Union troops under the leadership of General Sherman have made their way from Atlanta to Savannah, burning Confederate towns along their path. Or was it the Confederate soldiers looting and setting their towns aflame? Either way, word is the Union soldiers are headed to Columbia, South Carolina, with a fury.

Readers follow the stories of several characters—both real and imagined—as they learn about the chaotic community of Columbia as it tries to survive a blazing firestorm. Combining fictionalized narrative with actual documented accounts, readers see this controversial event through the eyes of seventeen-year-old Emma LeConte who struggles to keep her family safe after her father and uncle leave to transport war supplies away from the dying city. Then there’s Charles Davis, a mysterious Confederate soldier who warns the LeConte’s of impending doom. But is Charles really the Confederate spy he claims to be? Can he be trusted?

Each character’s different point of view allows readers to think critically and question who actually started this violent fire while exploring how the closing weeks of the war affected citizens and slaves alike.

Ocean of Fire is the second book in a series of historical fiction novels that commemorate horrific, life-changing events in America’s past. The Horrors of History series combines thorough research, first-hand accounts, and fictionalized characters and scenes to make history accessible to young readers. The results are gripping tales of devastation and bravery, made all the more intriguing by their foundation in real-life events.
