Welcome to my home page and thank you for your interest in my work. For me, history is more than just dates and faces to be remembered, it is about ideas and how people lived, and how individuals made a difference in making that history. My work revolves around that engagement of individuals in making history, discovering how events really took place from the point of view of the participants, and placing that experience into a broader context. My recent work is focused on the Civil War with an emphasis Ohio soldiers and units. Sherman's Praetorian Guard was awarded the Center for Archival Collections Local History Publication Award in March 2018. Most recently, Larry Strayer and I have released the first two volumes of the three volume Echoes of Battle series which highlights the role of Ohio's soldiers during the Civil war through riveting firsthand accounts and stunning imagery.
