I just gotta give my boss, Jim McClure, a plug as well as a loud round of applause. He and co-writer Scott Mingus just released their book, CIVIL WAR VOICES FROM YORK COUNTY, PA: REMEMBERING THE REBELLION AND THE GETTYSBURG CAMPAIGN in time for the kickoff of the 150th anniversary of the Civil War on April 12, 2011.
Jim talks about how the book came about in this post on his York Town Square blog.
Most of the stories and photos in the book came from the scrapbooks and oral traditions of York County families, and they cover the home front and war front.
Please pop over to Jim's blog and read about his newest book and about his journey to publication. Jim has written many history books and is not only a great person but a great journalist.
