ABOUT THE AUTHOR
My parents instilled a strong interest in both reading and history, and those interests led me to study the American Civil War, specifically the Union Cavalry. In recent years I have honed my interest in the cavalry to the crucial year of 1863.
I have guided tours of the Aldie, Middleburg and Upperville battlefields, as well as several tours of Mosby’s Confederacy along with Mosby historian Horace Mewborn. I have also guided tours of Indian War sites in Wyoming, Montana and Kansas for Bruce Venter and America’s History, LLC.
I have spoken to numerous Civil War Roundtables and am a member of the Rappahannock Valley Civil War Roundtable. I am also a member of the Civil War Trust and the Mosby Heritage Area Association.

I enjoy this blog very much and am going to get a copy of your book Chasing Stuart and Mosby at the first opportunity. Thank you!
Thank you John for your kind comments and for your interest in Chasing Stuart and Mosby. I do not currently have any copies or I would offer a signed copy
We have a home in King George County not far from Marmion that you discuss in one of your blogs. The home is a former plantation house, Mount Stuart, built in 1795. Do you have any information on Union or Confederate activity at the property? I understand you live in KG County?
I do not have information about Mount Stuart. The KG Historical Society produced a book on the old homes of the county, but I loaned my copy and never got it back. If you have not already done so, you might check with the historical society, as they may have a file on Mount Stuart.
