From the Publisher
Praise for Thunder From a Clear Sky
Midwest Book Review
"Thunder from a Clear Sky is the breathtaking true story of Confederate cavalry officer Adam 'Stovepipe' Johnson, who led the first Confederate raid across the Mason-Dixon Line to seize the river-port community of Newburgh, Indiana, during the American Civil War. Not a shot was fired. A highly accessible true story of how an ordinary man proved capable of a military master stroke, and the fallout thereafter when the territory he claimed was retaken by Union troops. A welcome contribution to Civil War and military history shelves."
Evansville Courier & Press Book Reviews
"A fascinating account of how a skilled former Indian fighter gathered a few Kentucky rebels and 'woke up' the slumbering Indiana Home Guard."
"History buffs will undoubtedly appreciate this illuminating account of an event outside the periphery of most history books."
Texas Hill Country Magazine
"Well written...I found Thunder from a Clear Sky to be a fascinating read...I think anyone interested in Texas history would enjoy this book."
Bluegrass Roots, The Quarterly Journal of the Kentucky Genealogical Society
"The story of how one man, Adam Rankin Johnson, scoured the countryside near Henderson, Kentucky, looking for recruits for the Confederacy, and ended up heading the group that was the first to invade the state of Indiana. This is a marvelous book and I highly recommend it."
