Description

In 1861 a young farmer, drafted into the Confederate Army, was wounded in battle and sent home to die. For two days he lay on a railway platform, begging passengers to contact his family in the hills. At last, an old slave who had purchased a wagon along with his freedom gently loaded him into his cart. The old man drove him to his family's farm, bathed his wounds in a stream, carried him to his cabin, and delivered the soldier to his astonished young wife.
By Faith and By Love is the story of that soldier's grandson, who grew up poor in small South Carolina mill towns. While many of his neighbors take out their frustrations with the legacy of the Civil War by joining the Ku Klux Klan, this soldier's grandson must honor his grandfather's rescuer by finding another path.
