In the Saddle
Adams, William Taylor. [As Oliver Optic] In the Saddle. Boston: Lee and Shepard, 1895. [The Blue and the Gray -- On Land] Out of print.
Following on the scene-setting begun in Brother against Brother, Adams follows the Lyon cousins, Deck and Artie, into the service of Deck's father's newly-raised infantry battalion. Family strife within the Lyon clan continues (as throughout this series) to serve as counterpoint to the internecine Civil War in Kentucky.
