I am currently collecting poems, letters, sketches, essays and other writings about the horse’s crucial but much underappreciated role in the American Civil War.
My plan is to compile the list of titles into a collection to be shared with educators and readers. (More than a million horses died in the bloody four-year conflict, yet their vast contribution and sacrifice is often overlooked or ignored. I would like to do something to help change this.)
I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or 828-775-4523.
