Joined 2 years ago from Lexington, Illinois
I was born in New Orleans, Louisiana in 1954 and am a graduate of Louisiana State University (LSU), Class of ’76, where I earned a bachelor degree in history general studies, specializing in the American Civil War and ancient Greek and Roman history. After a long career with the Federal government, both as an active Air Force officer and as a civilian employee, I came to Missouri in the summer of 2004. In July of that year I decided to pursue a long term interest in the Civil War. I began working as a historic interpreter at Confederate Memorial State Historic Site at Higginsville, and at the Battle of Lexington State Historic Site in Lexington. My duties there include developing and presenting tours to visitors, researching historical records, and helping people with genealogical research. I’ve published three books - a history of the Confederate Home, a two-volume work on the Confederate Home Cemetery and a reference work on the Civil War era Missouri State Guard. I’ve presented lectures to Civil War discussion groups, historical societies, Sons of Confederate Veterans and other groups with an interest in the Civil War. In June of 2016 my wife Sally and I moved to Lexington, Illinois to be nearer family.
