“Civil War Political Generals in Blue and Grey” Now Available for Purchase

The third book in my series, “Civil War Personalities, 50 At a Time” is now available in both paperback and ebook formats, along with my other books,  via my amazon.com author’s page.   Here is the link:


This book examines the military and political careers of a class of generals all too often denigrated in the Civil War literature.  In fact, many of them, like “Black Jack” Logan, Nathan Bedford Forrest, Patrick Cleburne, Phil Kearny, William Barksdale, Jacob Cox, and even future president James A. Garfield were key contributors to their armies.

As before in the series, for each man, 25 from the Union and 25 from the Confederacy, I have provided a contemporary photo, a 2-3 page “bio,” a map of a battle or similar event in their life, and 2-3 books for “further reading.”  In the days ahead I will be highlighting them in these pages, but for now, I offer the book for  your consideration.  Here is the cover”
