Civil War Lecture Review

He explained how important the Civil War was to the Memphis, Tennessee area I live near, as well as other nearby locations. He has written three books using his Civil War ancestor as a lead character. The books he has written are Once a Southern Soldier, Always a Southern Soldier, and due out this July 2013 is his third novel, Forever a Southern Soldier. I was given a copy to read and I am really looking forward to reading these books, especially after attending his fascinating lecture; of course, a follow-up review will be posted soon after!
