    okay, so the Civil War had a record number of deserters, both north and south... and my epic involves a soldier who says "fuck it" and drops his gun and deserts, determined to make his way back north through the war-torn land... along the way he encounters a gallery of characters, the disenfranchised, the dying, the dead... as he moves north. he sheds the many layers of his personality until he becomes denuded of all humanity.

    think Pilgrim's Progress and McCarthy's The Road.

    Thank you for your interest, Mr. Xyster.

    Read The Killer Angels again. No need to stress out on writing a Civil War novel.
