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.
