I just got back from the post office. The proofs for “The Boys of Diamond Hill” begin their short journey to McFarland Publishers where it will soon be an actual book graced by the beautiful cover they have designed for it. Here’s hoping it will have a long life enhancing they scholarship of the region and the conflict and that it makes certain that these folks will not be relegated to the scrape heap of history. These people are the quintessential “everyman” that national events sucked into a conflict much larger than they at first understood and assigned them their own special place in history.
