Reviews

"[A] well written, fast-pasted narrative of the Civil War in Northeast Florida...[that] vividly portrays the life, death, and destruction as Union troops invaded and occupied Jacksonville."--Civil War Book Review

"A well-written history... [It] will be the book to read to learn about the Civil War in the St. John's River area."--Florida Historical Quarterly

"Carefully examines the activities, military, social, and commercial, in this somewhat neglected theatre of action. ...[This book] offers the history of a city and a region precariously situated as a major center of commerce on the brink of Frontier Florida. Historians and Civil War aficionados will not want to miss this important addition to the literature of Florida."--The Journal of America's Military Past

"Impressive...successfully captures Jacksonville and Northeast Florida's antebellum, wartime, and postwar experience. ...[Schafer] weaves first-person accounts and big picture events into each other. ...It will be a bulwark for the topic for years to come."--Southern Historian

"Offers detailed insights into a heretofore little-known Civil War story."--Western Pennsylvania History

"Solidly researched and thorough in its presentation of the region's wartime military, social, and political history, Thunder on the River is the most impressive book published about the Civil War in Florida in recent memory."--Civil War Books and Authors
