About the Author

J.D. Proffitt writes from the heartland of the Midwest where he is an assistant professor at Illinois College in Jacksonville, Illinois-his second career following many years of cellular telecommunications engineering management; he also served as an officer on a destroyer in the U.S. Navy's Pacific Fleet. The author has explored many historical sites and nurtured a special interest in the Civil War, including a comprehensive analysis of the strategic activities of the War Department in Washington. As informative as it is exciting, J.D. Proffitt's first novel captures little known aspects of Civil War dynamics, including events that originated in his hometown of Alexander, Illinois.
