Duane Kinkade’s search for his father leads him to the Confederate Army at Corinth, Mississippi, and into battle near a church called Shiloh at a place called Pittsburg Landing. The circumstances of battle land him with the Union Army in the care of an army surgeon. UP FORM CORINTH is the story of that battle and the months that follow through the summer and fall of 1862. Finally, in the winter of ’62-’63, Duane is able to begin his trek back to the Confederate Army.
