Looking forward to my trip to North Bend, Ohio on April 19, 2018 to speak on The Other Trail of Tears. More details coming soon.
April 24, 2018: Unlikely General: "Mad" Anthony Wayne and the Battle for America
I will be a featured speaker at the Gaithersburg Book Festival on May 19, 2018. Stay tuned for more details about this great event where I will be speaking about my latest book, Unlikely General: "Mad" Anthony Wayne and the Battle for America.
Exciting news! My next book, Unlikely General: "Mad" Anthony Wayne and the Battle for America, heads to production at Yale University Press. This innovative biography -- written along multiple timelines that follow Wayne in his last command and flashback through the ups and downs of his turbulent life -- reveals the real man long hidden behind the nickname "Mad Anthony."
While most people have heard of the "Trail of Tears," few realize that more tribes than the Cherokee were sent west. The Delaware, Seneca, Shawnee, Ottawa, and Wyandot left their traditional homeland in the old Ohio Country for new reserves in Kansas and Oklahoma. They, too, departed west down the "Other Trail of Tears."
