Sons of my Fathers
The book intertwines two dramatic stories – the heroic saga of 19-year old Ulysses Simpson, who joins with his father Baylis to protect their family as the American Civil War rages around them; and the true story of another young Simpson man six generations later who follows the family tradition of service to the country and enlists in the military at the height of the Vietnam War.
