I read a book on it by Harry Turtledove called "Fort Pillow" a few years ago, though I can't remember it very well, it was a great story. I think Fort Pillow is interesting because it is just like Wake Island in WWII. The men who fought in these two battles  would regret not surrendering or even regret surrendering and their forces would pay in lives.
