Blue Dress

David Fulton

Michael Taylor is a man whose one focus on life is to bed women, but when his brother Henry signs up as a soldier to fight in the Union Army in the Civil War Michael agrees to accompany him to the recruiting office to say goodbye. It's there Michael's womanizing lands him in trouble and he has the choice of a shotgun wedding which he doesn't want or to sign up alongside his brother and become property of the Union Army. He chooses the later and it's isn't long before Michael and Henry find themselves rushed through boot camp and straight onto the battlefield. As the order to charge comes, Michael's life goes from bad to worse, and after his brother Henry is killed right in front of him he decides to walk away from the fight. Soon there after through a series of events not he could not have imagine he finds himself wearing of all things a blue dress, teamed up with a street smart runaway slave, and being pursued by a sadistic Lieutenant hunting deserters. Blue Dress is a mix of historical fact, family history mixed with humor and a bit of foreshadowing as to how things have played out since then.
