        Historian

Civil War Historian, Author, Speaker and Consultant

Welcome to my world.

     I believe the Civil War era to be the most critical in our history. ​I have been studying all aspects of the Civil War for my entire life, from reading books, conducting research, writing, and visiting battlefields, to working with artifacts and documents. 

     I speak to groups of all ages and can craft a discussion appropriate to your venue. My programs are informative. entertaining and affordable. Contact me, I'm the Civil War Guy.
