Welcome on board

Come and stowaway as we sail through the waters of nineteenth century America.

Our primary focus on this historical sea is the bouy marked 1863 – one of the most important and surprising years in the story of the United States. Apart from the famed events of the Civil War, so much else happened then – and was happening around then – to shape how the nation is today.

The purpose of the voyage is research for a book – the companion volume to our book The Last Days of Innocence: America at War 1917-1918 , published by Random House.

So come with us – subscribe to the blog – you never know what may turn up.
