The Last Full Measure

Brief excerpt from page 32 of book


Tacy is standing at their front door. The Yankee soldiers are passing by. One officer stops by the house for directions and while her brother goes to fetch his horse to show him the way, Tacy gets him a glass of water. He thanks her, casts her an admiring glance. "I'm Captain Jensen," he says, then asks of David, "is he your Brother?" She answers "Yes". Then David comes back on his horse and tells her, sternly.


"Behave yourself."


The officer quickly sees the connection between them, salutes her, nods his head, winks at her and rides away with her brother.
