Dyja, Thomas. Play for a Kingdom. New York: Harcourt, 1997.

During the Wilderness campaign in 1864, a Brooklyn unit discovers that an Alabama unit across the picket lines shares their intense interest in baseball. A North-South series begins under an informal flag of truce: but are the ballgames just a cover for some sinister espionage?

Unique working of baseball action into a Civil War campaign-and-battle story.
