A brief snippet from the early pages of my historical novel, Annie's War. Annie Ralston is based on my great grandfather's elder sister, Annie Simpson, who lived from 1838 until 1921. She was a farmer's daughter from central Pennsylvania. The American Civil War was the seminal event in her life. Three of her brothers fought in the war. Two were killed; one at Second Bull Run and one at Antietam. A third, who would eventually become my great grandfather, James Randolph Simpson, was shot through the belly at Gettysburg but lived to tell the story because of the heroic efforts of his sister Annie. Annie's War tells that story and many others.
