The Old Courthouse, Christ Episcopal Church, and the Duff Green Mansion in Vicksburg, Mississippi will provide historical settings for the second novel of my Shiloh Trilogy.
The soft soil around Vicksburg made digging of the city’s extensive network of fortifications easier, but it also facilitated Union troops in building their own siege line and in undermining the Confederate works.
Book trailers are a popular marketing tool for promoting a new book. Here’s an inside look at the trailer for my novel An Eye for Glory.
About 100 men of the 14th Connecticut Volunteer Infantry defended over 100 yards of the famous rock wall at Gettysburg during Pickett’s Charge. How did they do that?
Between the lines at Gettysburg, fighting went back and forth for possession of the Bliss Farm for more than a day, yet few people know about it.
It’s hard to keep track on the many changes in the chain of command that the men of the 14th Connecticut endured during the first ten months of the regiment’s existence. I hope this video helps.
The ruins of the Windsor mansion are certainly worth a short side trip if you happen to find yourself in the area of Port Gibson or Alcorn State University in Mississippi.
Here are four books that I relied on heavily to get the history correct in my novel “An Eye for Glory.”
The death of Stonewall Jackson was caused by men under his own command and need not have happened. It was a loss the Confederacy never recovered from.
The Battle of Chancellorsville was the high point of the war for the Confederacy and perhaps the low point for the Union. Defeat caused leadership changes in the Army of the Potomac, and growing frustration and even anger within the ranks.
