Product Description
The battle of Fort Pillow and the subsequent massacre of Union troops, many of them African Americans, after they had surrendered is one of the most notorious incidents of our Civil War. "The Pillow Tree" is a short story written in the form of a letter from a Confederate officer to his sweetheart after the battle. Its details are derived from primary source documents and closely adhere to historians’ consensus of the sequence of the battle’s events.

Use this story and its common core activities to open discussions about our shared history and how it resonates throughout our towns
and cities today.
