William Gilmore Simms
David Aiken is retired from teaching English at the College of Charleston and the Citadel. Aiken has written, edited, or introduced more than fifty articles and books on Simms and other Southern writers, including Fire in the Cradle: Charleston's Literary Heritage, The Golden Christmas, and Blood Money.
"A graphic account of the horrors, the brutality and sometimes wanton destruction of warfare, particularly of civil war, where sectional enmities and jealousies tend to eclipse humane instincts, Aiken's book is a worthy contribution to the body of studies that continues to emerge on the literary contributions of William Gilmore Simms."—Charleston (S.C.)
