1 Bahr, Howard The Black Flower: A Novel of the Civil War
Baltimore, Maryland The Nautical and Aviation Publishing Company of America 1997 187785350X / 9781877853500 First Edition Hard Cover 
[1997]. Fine in a Fine dustjacket. Red boards. The spine is stamped in gilt. Octavo. 267pps. First printing. An excellent, collector's-quality copy: clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp. The textblock is immaculate; no apparent reading wear and no previous ownership markings. The first-state dustjacket, glossy in a new mylar sleeve, is mildly rubbed; no chips or tears. Bahr's powerfully written first novel, a story with much more depth of character than Shaara's 'The Killer Angels'.

"'The Black Flower' is a story not only of war, but of men and women seeking redemption, who are stripped of all that anchors them, and who at last turn to honor and courage and love. At twenty-six, Bushrod Carter is already an old soldier, a veteran of all his regiment's campaigns since Shiloh. Now, on an Indian summer afternoon in 1864, Bushrod finds himself in line of battle once again, on the plain below the obscure village of Franklin, Tennesee. The dark flower of his destiny is opening in the twilight, just as it has on other fields, and Bushrod must pass once again under its shadow if he is to see tomorrow. In the madness and violence of a great battle and its aftermath, Bushrod Carter tries to act his part as well as he can. He must confront his soul and learn from his comrades and from a young girl struggling with her own harsh past."
