Synopsis

Thunder of Cannon tells the magnificent saga of the battle for New Orleans, and of those who fought with honor and courage - in the heart of a nation cut in two by civil war.

The time is April 1862 during the Civil War with the Union Navy pounding with their powerful cannons at the gates of New Orleans. The time had come for the city to choose sides and go to war.

From the narrow streets of the French Quarter to wind swept Lake Pontchartrain and the vast bayou country, the battle of New Orleans plunges men and women into chaos, tragedy, and a struggle for survival and revenge.

Luke Coldiron came to New Orleans with 250 horses from the New Mexico Territory to sell to the Confederate forces. He found a city overrun by Union forces, and a beautiful woman who would draw him into her need for revenge against a renegade U.S. marine commander and his private band of thugs and murderers.

Susan Dauphin, the daughter of a wealthy plantation owner, watched her world go up in smoke. Driven to fury from and act of treachery and murder, she pits herself into a life or death struggle against the marauding Union marines. She would earn one man's hatred, and another's undying love.
Marine Captain Rawls landed in New Orleans from Admiral Farragut's Navy flotilla. Ripping into the South's heartland, he broke the Confederate hold on the city, and began a dirty private war of murder and thievery.

Panther, the Chickasaw Indian had run into the swamps and hid when his people were forcibly removed from their homeland and taken to the Oklahoma Territory. Now he fights the invaders to restore his honor as a warrior.
