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.

weekend in the wilderness
The invitation to write a guest blog for Emerging Civil War is just great! I have spent the weekend working and reworking the article, and I think I almost have it. I even needled a publisher, Schroeder Publications, about First Fallen. Now all I have to do is figure out how to put a link to both sites on THIS blog--huzzah!
