History comes alive

About Me

My Experiences


I am is a sixth generation South Carolinian. I have degrees in History and Electrical Engineering from East Carolina University and the University of Tennessee, respectively.  Following a career in the nuclear industry, I have returned to my earlier love of history with this book of family Civil War letters.  I reside in Aiken, S.C. where I operate a small bookselling business specializing in Civil War, Caroliniana, and Southern fiction.

Join My Journey


I  worked hard to identify the people in A South Carolina Upcountry Saga, but genealogical information can be hard to find.  If, in reading the book, you find information about the people mentioned in the letters, I'd like to hear from you so I can update a future revision with new information.
