Battle Of Waynesboro Manuscript Complete

Finally. The Battle of Waynesboro manuscript for the History Press's Sesquicentennial series is finished. From HP's website:
This series honors the 150th anniversary of the War Between the States. Each book is a concise illustrated history of an epic battle, a critical turning point, a pivotal campaign or a hallowed location. Authors are respected Civil War scholars who condense their research into accessible volumes of 40,000 to 50,000 words and 60 to 70 images. Successful subjects have on-site visitor centers with retail operations that support the books.
The initial draft has been sent to the editor, along with the photographs to be included in the book. It has been an honor to write a history of a battle which occurred in my hometown and on ground I not only grew up on, but on which I was actually born. It's also an honor to have the book slated for the HP's Sesquicentennial series. The timing is perfect, as the book is to be released some time this fall; just in time for the BoW's 150th anniversary on 2 March 2015.
