Another Book on Great-Grandfather Republished
Another book about my great-grandfather, James M. Williams, is being republished by the University of Iowa Press. This State of Wonders, which contains letters to and from my great-grandfather during the Civil War, was edited by my old high school history teacher, Dr. John Kent Folmar. This new release will be in e-book format. The previous book, From that Terrible Field, was republished in paperback format by the University of Alabama Press. Both were based on letters found in the attic of my house in Mobile, Alabama.

James Williams moved south and fought in the Civil War for the Confederacy, while his family remained in Iowa. There are a few more letters to and from James in this blog.

  1. Jim,

    Ryan here from Clown Hall. You should consider coming back. There are a lot more of like minded folks like us than there were in 2008 when Ron Paul was running. With the additional reinforcements we have we could do a cyber version of Chancellorville on the bad and the stupid guys like Lil' Neo.

    I'm glad you found your great great grandfather's sword. That weapon is priceless in more ways than one.
