Blue & Gray Cross Current

by Suzanne Chilton
(Eminence, MO, USA)




Editor's note: Dan & Suzanne Chilton have written and published Blue & Gray Cross Current, a Civil War novel based on the true story of their family's Civil War experience. I think this is a book worth checking out!


Deep in the Ozark Mountains, Current River flows clear and cold. It meets Jacks Fork in angry crosscurrents that scour an untamed channel. Dangerous and unpredictable are its waters and banks...but never more so than in the summer of 1862. It is Civil War, and the Chilton family finds out exactly what gumption means. In the middle of the country, on the dividing edge of Northern and Southern sentiments, lines are drawn and the world they know explodes. Peace and devastation collide.

Alexander Chilton has a Yankee sight trained on his head and hatred burns in his heart. The lone survivor of a Federal ambush, he joins Coleman's Regiment as a first lieutenant, but circumstances lead him to take the Confederate cause into his own hands.

As a bushwhacker, he moves of his own accord and agenda. His once gallant reputation gains no favor when rumors of murder and thievery swirl. The war tightens. Brothers, cousins and uncles continue to fall on their own land. Alexander stands in the torrent, torn between the blue eyes of Elizabeth Davis and the rough gray of his personal rebel revenge.

Be captured by the wild beauty of Ozark National Scenic Riverways, today's caretaker of the farms of our ancestors. To more than a million visitors annually to the region, "Welcome to Shannon County--stay a day or a lifetime."

Based on family memoirs and official records, we self-published a well-researched novel, complete with extensive bibliography, in October 2013. Available on Amazon.com, Blue & Gray Cross Current is published in print and Kindle versions. The audio version scheduled release is June 2014. We hold all rights to the book, exclusively produced by Amazon companies CreateSpace, Kindle, and Audible.

Join us each Saturday night at the Shannon County Courthouse for the Civil War Remembrance Series, Summers 2011-2015. May 3, 2014 kicks off this season with the 399th Army Band concert, Civil War encampment, storyteller/living historian Suzanne Chilton, and demonstrators of heritage crafts.

Private Security Companies


Private Security Companies - Do you need a contract security provider to ensure the safety of your home, business, or personal valuables? If so, you’ve probably encountered several private security companies while attempting to narrow down your choices. But what exactly is a private security company, and what are some advantages to hiring a private company instead of relying on local law enforcement?
