Colonel Elmer Ellsworth was the first Union officer to die in the American Civil War. No new biography of his life has been published since 1960--so I am writing one.

not too much to report
I thought I may get the chapter finished tonight, but I am very sleepy. It is difficult to concentrate and refer to resources when your brain just wants to go to bed and sleep. Here is a picture of the NY Zouaves leaving NYC on their way to Annapolis, then on to Washington. More tomorrow?? I hope?
