Random Updates

Pardon the lack of posts as of late, but my beautiful wife and I just welcomed our second child into the world this week. That being said, I thought I’d update all of you on a few things that are worth noting.

1. In the “tooting my own horn” department, Civil War Trust President O. James Lighthizer has kindly agreed to write the forward to my New Market Heights book. Also, check out the site for Colonial Williamsburg’s page for the upcoming electronic field trip entitled When Freedom Came. Yours truly wrote the historical background for said field trip.

2. Check out a very interesting post from Alan Skerrett, Jr. about monuments to United States Colored Troops.

3. Be sure to take a look at the historical consultants for the upcoming miniseries To Appomattox. Quite impressive, to say the least.


  1. Mighty and hearty congratulations on the birth of your second child. Best wishes to all.

  2. Thank you Thomas! Also, since you were the ONLY person to respond to the contest announcement, you automatically win the copy of Wert's new book! Email me your address and I'll get it out to you as quick as I can!

  3. Will do. I hope you enjoyed the poem. Perhaps we can "talk" sometime. I'd like to garner some advice - writer to writer.
