Congratulations, John C. Hall on the Launch of your Book

Congratulations to my friend and confederate (and Confederate!) John C. Hall, Jr. on the publication of his wonderful book, Above the High Water Mark. Yes, I've had some sneak previews, and it's truly engaging.

All too often in the popular culture, Southerners of the civil war era are portrayed as malevolent quasi-humans. John's great-great grandfather, Stephen Alpheastus "Fes" Corker, the subject of the book, obliterates that fabrication. His letters show him to be a warm, thoroughly human man concerned with home and family, including slaves, concerned with the men in is unit, particularly the sick, injured and dying ... but a fierce soldier who exhibited the courage and valor that Confederate soldiers were known for then, and still are.

John's book will be an invaluable resource for those researching the war, or the historic South, but it will be equally appealing to those reading for pleasure. A love story, a soldier's tale, a portrait of survival and recovery after devastation... A worthy addition to the Southern Confederate canon....

Visit John's book blog for a closer look at the story and a great first review by Scott Mingus, Sr. There's also ordering/purchase information. The book is available from the publisher, from and from CreateSpace.

Much success, sir, to you and your book! Godspeed.
