In 1999, I determined to fulfill a childhood dream and write a book. After considering options, I turned to my collection of Civil War portrait photographs and found inspiration.
I started in earnest in 2000. Four years later my first book, Faces of the Civil War: An Album of Union Soldiers and Their Stories, became a reality. A series of companion volumes followed. Each captures a major wartime narrative—Confederates, African Americans, sailors and nurses.
My latest book, Gettysburg Faces: Portraits and Personal Accounts (Gettysburg Publishing, 2022), is a collection of 100 original, rarely seen photographs of identified Union and Confederate soldiers and other participants in the Gettysburg Campaign, each accompanied by vivid accounts of their personal experiences based on letters, journals, newspaper reports, regimental histories and other documents. Signed copies are available for purchase.
