I can’t think of a better way to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the American Civil War than to write a short story involving one of the battles fought in Spotsylvania, Virginia. I credit the inspiration for this story to my own family history. If you trace your family history, chances are great you’ll find an ancestor who fought in the Civil War.

“The Better Country” is a story about a Civil War chaplain who decides to join the battlefield, but quickly discovers the tragic cost of war.
