About The Book
This isn’t an ordinary Civil War tale. It is the all-true but little-known story of Adam “Stovepipe” Johnson-Kentucky legend, Texas hero, and Confederate cavalry officer-who boldly led the first Confederate raid across the Mason-Dixon Line to capture the thriving river-port community of Newburgh, Indiana, during the American Civil War. Not a shot was fired. With the politically divided landscape of Civil War Kentucky and the steamboat economy of the Ohio River as its backdrop, this is the historically accurate account of surprise nocturnal strikes, opportunistic military occupations, and a swashbuckling Rebel icon’s daring daylight invasion into the Northern homeland that sealed the fate of western Kentucky for the remainder of the war.
Vivid, thorough, and painstakingly researched, “Thunder from a Clear Sky” documents five critical weeks of 1862 Civil War history and shares the untold tale of one man’s immeasurable impact on a nation at war.
“A fascinating account of how a skilled former Indian fighter gathered a few Kentucky rebels and ‘woke up’ the slumbering Indiana Home Guard.”
-“Evansville Courier & Press Book Reviews”
“An important and, until now, largely neglected story about the American Civil War… “Thunder from a Clear Sky” stands as a fresh and important contribution in a field long studied.”-Professor Randy K. Mills, Ph.D., Oakland City University, author of “Jonathan Jennings: Indiana’s First Governor ”
