Show synopsis "Through careful and thorough research coupled with spirited writing, Too Afraid to Cry lifts the veil on an untold stow of the Maryland campaign of 1862. Readers will not likely think of the effects of the Civil War on civilians the same way again." -- David J. Eicher, author of The Civil War in Books and Robert E. Lee: A Life Portrait The battle at Antietam Creek, "the bloodiest day in American history, " left more than 23,000 men dead, wounded, or missing. Facing the aftermath were the children, women, and men living in the village of Sharpsburg and on surrounding farms. In Too Afraid to Cry, the author recounts the dramatic experiences of these Maryland citizens, stories that have never been told, and also examines the complex political web holding together Unionists and Secessionists, many of whom lived under the same roofs in this divided countryside.
