Mar 24 2021 Civil War Troublemakers and Trailblazers

Gene Schmiel is a student of the Civil War whose book, Citizen-General: Jacob Dolson Cox and the Civil War Era, in 2014  was deemed “best biography of the year” in 2014 by Civil War Books and Authors. He has lectured at many Round Tables around the country, from Ohio to New Jersey to North Carolina.  Gene holds a Ph. D. degree from The Ohio State University and was an assistant professor of History at St. Francis University (PA)  before becoming  a Foreign Service Officer with the Department of State.

Early in 2020 Gene began work on a series of books entitled, CIVIL WAR PERSONALITIES, 50 AT A TIME.  Each of the six books highlights 50 people via short essays noting their impact on the Civil War era.  Using period photographs and other information from the era, such as political cartoons, the books bring to life these interesting personalities.  Each essay also includes a reading list for further information.  His talk, "Civil War Trailblazers and Troublemakers," will discuss relevant characters from each of the books.  The books are:

Civil War Trailblazers and Troublemakers

Civil War Rogues, Rascals, and Rapscallions

Civil War Political Generals in Blue and Grey

Civil War Women: Underestimated and Indispensable

Civil War Unsung Heroes and Other Key People "Behind the Scenes."

The Civil War in Statuary Hall

Gene's books are available via Amazon or by writing Gene at geneofva@gmail.com for autographed copies.
