Author Appearance: Saratoga Springs, NY
Friday, October 26, 2018
Military historian Bill Howard of Delmar, NY will be appearing for an author event and book signing at the Northshire Bookstore (424 Broadway, Saratoga Springs, NY ) on Friday, October 26, 2018 at 7:00 pm. Howard’s new book, “The Battle of Ball's Bluff: All the Drowned Soldiers,” published by The History Press, tells the story of the ill-fated scouting expedition that took place near Leesburg, Virginia, which quickly escalated into a full scale battle resulting in a significant loss of Union lives. A subsequent Congressional investigation had far-reaching impacts on the military and political conduct of the Civil War.
Howard will present a brief program describing the Battle and its aftermath, and will be available to answer questions and sign copies of his book. Howard is a native of Delmar, NY and a graduate of Bethlehem Central High School and Manhattanville College in Purchase, NY. He was a Herbert H. Lehman Fellow at the Nelson Rockefeller Graduate School of Public Affairs (SUNY Albany) and has published extensively on military, social, and political issues. His most recent books are: "What the RAF Airman Took to War," (Shire, 2015), and The Civil War Memoirs of William T. Levey (Northshire Press, 2007). From 2011-2015, Howard also authored a popular series of 45 articles in the Albany Times Union that highlighted the 150th anniversary of the American Civil War.
