Description: After fighting valiantly at the Battle of Gettysburg, ten men from the Third North Carolina Regiment decided to leave their unit and go home. Their courageous struggle on Culp's Hill is revealed in this book, as is their flight to North Carolina. Captured, tried and convicted, they were sent back to their regiment for punishment-execution. That punishment took place on the grounds of Montpelier, Virginia, the home of President James Madison, the man known as the Father of the Constitution. The author is an interpreter at Montpelier, and offers a brief history of Montpelier and the Madisons from the 1720s to 1863, and well-documented biographical information about the deserters and the adjutant sent to arrest them.
