Excerpt from Madigan:
“Madigan closed in, keeping as much as he was able to the shadows. He was but five feet from the bushwhacker when the man unexpectedly turned around. Madigan froze, sure the man had seen him. For a long while they stood facing each other, sweat running off Madigan’s forehead as though it were a hundred degrees in the shade. He didn’t dare so much as breathe. Madigan swore he could see all the way down the shotgun’s two barrels. All that was left was for the bushwhacker to pull the trigger. Madigan didn’t have a hope in the world of beating him to the draw.”

On April 12, 1861, the Civil War of the United States began when the Confederate States of America fired on Fort Sumter. The war officially lasted until April 9, 1865.
Between the beginning and the end of this turbulent time in the United States, many families were torn asunder. Brother fought brother, neighbor fought against neighbor; it was a sad and sorry chapter in America’s history.
It was a time of hard feelings and feuds between families and relatives, and it was one of the most costly wars in lives America has ever seen. And this wasn’t the end of the bloodshed.
