In the Blood

The story of George Washington Skipper

 

Who was George Washington Skipper?

 

He was a twice-wounded Confederate veteran who loved the ladies a little too much. He kept moving to stay ahead of his wives and the whipping post until Reconstruction and personal tragedy ran him to ground deep in the woods of South Carolina—with the wrong woman.

 

This is the book I intended to write when I began Family Traits.  George Washington Skipper did some very, shall I say, colorful things.  He had four wives, sixteen or seventeen children who were recorded, he adopted three more and he spent four years in the Confederate Army.  The bulk of the story follows his Civil War experience.  The personalities of the characters are, of course, invented, however, their names are taken from the historical record which has been scrupulously followed.
