In 1864, George D. Prentice, veteran editor of the pro - Union Louisville Daily Journal created the persona of Sue Mundy, a Civil War guerilla who was in actuality a young man named Marcellus Jerome Clarke. This volume offers an in-depth, historically accurate account of Clarke's exploits in Kentucky during the Civil War. The work begins with a summary of Kentucky's prewar position: primarily pro - Union yet decidedly anti - Lincoln. The authors then discuss the ways in which this paradox gave rise to the guerilla threat that terrorized Kentuckians during the final years of the war.
