Thanks for the info Patch,
Maybe you can grab the books and let us know some of the passage in it. For the man wrote already 2 books and working on a thirs one then like you say, what he has to say about it must be interesting.

Anyone can write a book. Not everyone can write a book that sells. I vaguely remember this man as editor of our newspaper a long time ago. From his picture published with the article, I have seen him in restaurants recently. Amazingly, in my small town, I do not know him.

Patch;

Yeah its amazing what can go on or who lives in a small town and nobody knows. You see aperson everyday and say good morning or whatever not really knowing who that person is or what they have done. I will keep an eye out for the two books that the gentleman has written and if I can buy them to add to my History Library.

Camac.

PS. Found one of the books on Amazon.ca Authors name is Jay W. Simson

Let us know if indeed the history written in it is acurate in your point of view.

I would expect his writing to be somewhat that of a journalist and that his approach would be more conservative. I would be surprised if he formed ideas of his own. More likely he researched and reported.

Patch;

From what little I have quickly read Crisis of Command deal with the problems Gen Phil Sheridan had when he took Command of the Army of the Potomac. I haven't really got into the book yet but I will this weekend and post my impressions.

I wish I had more time to read. I have too many things going at one time. When he gets back in town I am going to try to round up signed copies of the two published books and the one coming out. Off topic, does anyone know of any good books re: Indians of the Mid West? A friend has a grand daughter living in a badly fractured home situation. She is of part Indian ancestry and is hanging on to that aspect of her life. I am not looking for "Custers Last Stand as told by the army." Something as seen from the Indian point of view would be more appropriate. Thanks

I have read very little about the North American Indian but I did look at Amazon.ca
Which had quite a few titles listed. I am assuming that Amazon.com will be the same.It might help you. Good Luck.

Try Custer Died for Your Sins - Vine DeLoria Jr.

There's also a book of essays called Blood Struggle that may work as well...can't think of the editor's name, my clan mother has my copy at the moment so I can't look it up right this minute.
