Three Paths to Glory is the story of three regiments in the American Civil War:  the 2nd and 5th Minnesota and the 1st Tennessee. It follows each of the regiments through the war through the eyes of men serving in them. Clinton Cilley, of the 2nd Minnesota will be awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor, Jimmy Dunn of the 5th fights bravely in the Indian wars and at the Battle of Nashville. Sam Davis of the 1st Tennessee is remembered as the "Boy Hero of the Confederacy" for his gallant and noble deeds. We follow their exploits through their respective regiments. While historical fiction, this book is extensively researched and the events and people are accurately portrayed. The grime, grit and valor of service in his deciding point of American history is part of the story.
