Terror in the South
A Civil War novel by Michael J. Deeb
By May of 1865, the battlefields of the Civil War were silent and four million Southern slaves were freed. But the people of the South were unwilling to accept them as free. Instead, a secret war of resistance began.
The federal government tried to fashion a place in southern society for the freed Negro. But by 1878, Northern public opinion tired of the ‘Negro Problem.’ So, Congress and the new President Hayes, turned their backs on the problem and left it to the former states of the Confederacy to address.
In this historical novel, follow Michael Drieborg and his wife as they find themselves up against the Union League in Georgia. See their son fight the Klan and it’s allies in South Carolina for the survival of a successful multi-race community on Edisto Island.

Praise for Michael Deeb’s “The Drieborg Chronicles”
This is as much action as anyone could wish for in this novel.
The plot is not limited to the war. —it is only one facet in a
complicated scenario that holds the reader’s interest.
The Civil War Chronicle
“…a stimulating series with strong character development that
holds the reader’s attention throughout.”
