Bridget Smith -
Where Elephants Fought
Bridget Smith was born and raised in Columbia, Tennessee, not far from the setting of Where Elephants Fought, her Civil War era novel that details the May 7, 1863, murder of Confederate General Earl Van Dorn at the hands of Dr. George Peters. Published by Sunbury Press in 2015, Where Elephants Fought is based on years of extensive research and reveals the true motive behind Dr. Peter’s actions, providing an answer to the 150 year-old question: Why did the Doctor shoot the General?
Bridget has a Masters in English and has taught literature and writing for more than twenty-five years. She lives in Raymond, Mississippi, with her husband Ray and their four children, and is currently at work on a Research Companion Guide for Where Elephants Fought, and is conducting research for a book on the life of the notorious Confederate General Marshall Tate Polk.
