For Immediate Release

What Do Caves, Cannons, and Crinolines Have in Common?

Many times ordinary singular items are brought together to tell the most unusual story and Caves, Cannons, and Crinolines is one of those times. The year 1863 is a turbulent time for the people of Vicksburg, Mississippi. Frustration swells for fourteen-year-old, Elizabeth (Lizzie) Stamford for only men are allowed to serve in the Confederate Army. Bombings occur daily and Lizzy’s mother finds them safety in the cave behind their house, hence the blending of Caves, Cannons, and Crinolines.

The fictional story of the Stamford family told through the eyes of young Lizzy propels the reader into the historical events surrounding the Battle of Vicksburg and the harsh realities of war and one fourteen-year-old girl’s determination to make a difference at any cost.

Author, Beverly Stowe McClure’s expert research and writing ability will make you feel the dampness of the cave, the echoing of bombs, the distinct rustling of crinolines, and the harshness of war all intertwined for an experience one will soon not forget.
