Frank Crawford Talks About In the Shadows of Lincoln at MCCWRT September Meeting-- Part 1

Long-time member of the McHenry County Civil War Round Table in Illinois gave the talk, somewhat revolving around his most current book "In the Shadows of Lincoln."  This book did not detail the assassination which has been covered in so many other books and research, but goes into the lives of others, generally of lesser importance and research who were involved with aspects of it.

I was sorely tempted to buy a copy as this sort of Civil War history interests me and I get into it a lot in these blogs, but I am trying to only buy books associated with the naval war.

Mr. Crawford also has another book "Proud To Say I Am a Union Soldier: The Last Letters Home From federal Soldiers Written During the War" where he writes about the lives of twenty-one different Union soldiers.

He spent some of the time talking about the many problems getting books published, including finding a publisher, reviews by critics and problems arising when the publisher wants changes in the manuscript.
