Welcome to My Website

Here you will find information about my background, publications, lectures and book signings. For the past 20 years, I have traveled to Civil War sites around the country, and have conducted research and written articles and book reviews for newspapers and magazines, as well as published two books.

“Spies, Scouts, and Secrets in the Gettysburg Campaign” is an award-winning book about intelligence operations during the nearly two-month long campaign when Gen. Robert E. Lee led his Army of Northern Virginia northward into Pennsylvania in June-July 1863. It received the Bachelder-Coddington Literary Award as the best book about Gettysburg in 2015. It also earned honorable mention for the Delmarva Book Prize for 2015 in the non-fiction category.

An earlier book, “Essays on Delaware during the Civil War,” is an introduction to Delaware’s political process, military participation, and social involvement during this period.
