("Blood Runs Deep" is the story of Jacob and Jonas Hawley,...)
"Blood Runs Deep" is the story of Jacob and Jonas Hawley, brothers, who by chance or circumstances find themselves on opposite sides of one of the deadliest battles in American history, the Civil War conflict at Antietam Creek, Maryland. At first glance, the brothers could not be more different. Jacob is a Union officer, a duty bound commander with wife and children waiting anxiously for his return. His brother Jonas is a Confederate soldier, a loner with few roots and ideas of desertion running rampant. By blood, the brother inherit a common characteristic: pride, a pride that drives every decision, a pride with fateful consequences for both. "Blood Runs Deep" follows Jacob and Jonas through familiar battle scenes at the battle of Antietam, each unaware of the other, their paths so very close, and yet, so very far.
