If the story takes place during the American Civil War and is well written and good, it's here. If you have a story you feel will fit here, please PM me and send me the story.

Never Prepared by Star the Foxhound reviews
Families should not have had to bow their heads next to the empty spot at the tables. Comrades never should have had to bury a close friend or brother, maybe someone who had just been trying to kill them.

Bloodbath by Pure Imagination reviews
It was July 3rd, 1863. I’d reckon there were about two thousand soldiers of the Confederate States lined up to fight under General Armistead. Our division had no weapons... Oneshot about Pickett's Charge. Rated T purely for violence.
