Lexington Book Update



I am currently working hard to finish some final edits for a deadline on the Lexington book. After a major virus and PC crash, I pretty much had to rewrite much of the book over from scratch. The original publication date was to be last year. The History Press has been very patient and understanding. So far, they've been great to work with. The working title is Lexington in The Civil War. Also, the book will have a surprise contribution by another author, who also happens to be a good historian. The tentative release date is March of this year.

While the book will not break any new ground, I trust it will make a good resource for those looking for some basic Civil War history surrounding Lexington. I did come across a few "nuggets" that I don't think have ever been published elsewhere in a book and which will add to the final product's value.
