Inhaltsangabe: High Ground is a fictional account of the legal, political, and moral conflict that would eventually turn American against American. Garrett Fitzwilliam sacrificed the woman he loved to preserve the Union, but how does he defend the United States of America when America's survival depends upon an army sabotaged by its own incompetence? Or was America lost when the president, who swore an oath to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution, imprisoned his political foes?

Vom Autor: There are hundreds, if not thousands, of American Civil War novels. I haven't read them all, but I have yet to read a novel that approaches the subject as I have in High Ground. 
In writing the story, I made a conscience effort to view the period through the eyes of someone living at that time, characters who don't have the advantage of hindsight. I point that out because it's only in hindsight that we recognize the success of Lincoln's presidency and his handling of the crisis that threatened the nation. At the same time, we have simplified the conflict to a single issue, slavery. I don't deny that slavery was a critical factor, but I believe the issues dividing the nation were more complicated, and yet, all those issues are first and foremost about power-political and economic power, which was divided between competing regional interests-North and South.
A driving force behind that power struggle was the competing interpretations of the Constitution: Was the union of the states perpetual, or was it a compact that could be dissolved? In other words, what are states' rights? A hundred and fifty years later, that question is still unanswered-with one exception. The war decided that state's are not free to leave the Union at will. Otherwise, the struggle to maintain the balance of power between the federal and state governments continues.*
In High Ground, I attempt to provide a broader framework within which to view the War Between the States. From there, I tell the story of a man who dedicated his life to serving, protecting and defending his country, but sees the freedom and democracy guaranteed in the Constitution, everything he is fighting for, being sacrificed in Lincoln's efforts to save the Union.
If I have learned anything in the process of writing my novel, it is that in one way or another history repeats itself. During times of war, we still have to ask ourselves what freedoms will we sacrifice, or can we sacrifice, and still be America?
 
*Neither the Emancipation Proclamation nor the war ended slavery in America. The war did make it possible to adopt the Thirteenth and Fourteenth Amendments to the Bill of Rights, which ended slavery and provided citizenship to the former slaves.
