Publisher Description

SWORDS AND PLOWSHARES is
an epic tale of one familys struggles in the cauldron that shaped modern :
The Civil War. More than merely a war
novel, though, SWORDS AND PLOWSHARES traces three generations of the
Barger family in an historically accurate narrative
that extends from to ,
and from the 1820's into the twentieth century.


The book focuses on the lives of
two remarkable men, Allen Barger and his son James. It is a story of their triumph over the
rigors and hardships of frontier life during the 19th century, of
their love and sorrow, their struggles and battles, their successes and
failures, and of the abiding religious conviction that gave them the strength
to endure. From a genealogical
prospective, the book is a living family history--historical and genealogical
research have been combined to bring to life generations of an American
family. From an historical perspective,
the novel provides a grippingly realistic portrayal of life in mid-nineteenth
Century America and of the hardworking, God-fearing people who built this
nation and held it together when it was torn asunder. Allen Barger and James Barger typify
countless nameless legions of the common folk that made
what it is today, and the retelling of their story honors every family
descended from the stalwart stock of the American frontier.
