Jeff Shaara will discuss his father’s Pulitzer Prize-winning Civil War novel, The Killer Angels. Inspired by this character-driven Civil War story, Jeff Shaara wrote “bookends” to the Battle of Gettysburg. His Gods and Generals is a prequel, featuring General Lee and General Longstreet of the Confederacy, and Colonel Chamberlain of the Union Army at the outset of the Civil War. The Last Full Measure is a sequel that follows three men, General Lee, General Grant, and Colonel Chamberlain, through the last two years of this great national conflict. Together, Michael and Jeff Shaara have written a compelling American trilogy that is hailed as the best Civil War novels ever written.

Q & A with the audience will follow Shaara’s presentation. The Killer Angels , Gods and Generals and the Last Full Measure will be available for purchase and signing.
