Subject: [TalkAntietam] Suggestions for Antietam historian?
A while back I posted a few of my Antietam photographs. Now I'm preparing a
detailed proposal for a publisher. I plan on including a
forward/introduction to the
book written by a historian or other expert on the battle.
I have my short list of people I'd love to have as author--I thought it
valuable to get your input--I'd love to see your suggestions.
Who do you think would make a "perfect" author for my introduction?
My requirements are as follows: 1) A detailed understanding of the battle
larger importance in US history; 2) The ablity to write eloquently; 3) For
lack of a
better term, a "feeling" for the landscape of the battlefield.
Fame a plus but not critical. The person need not be a traditional historian
expert (for example, a non-fiction writer with a special interest in
Your thoughts? (or e-mail directly if you prefer)
