“Lincoln, Antietam and a Northern Lost Cause,” An Alternative History

In honor of Lincoln’s birthday, I wanted to update my post about this book, a speculation on “what if” the Union had won at Antietam, yet slavery did not end,  is now available in both ebook and paperback format.

The book is not written in a traditional narrative format, but rather in a “you are there” approach, using the words of the men who were part of this epic drama.

The nation’s foremost Civil War historian, James McPherson, wrote of it, “I enjoyed your new story of a smashing Union victory at Antietam. the capture of Lee, the death of Jackson and Hood, and the end of the war.  I hope you can find a publisher and an audience…I found it fascinating myself.  Thanks for sharing it with me.”

You can follow these developments and buy the book via my amazon.com author’s web-site,
