Another great book. I had absolutely no idea that Frederick Olmstead, creator of Central Park and The Biltmore Estate among other things, was a journalist who did this great journey through the slave states before the Civil War. The author tries to follow his trail in modern times and has a really good section on Texas and the border. Ben you especially might like this.
Utterly fascinating and another one I couldn’t put down. I’m not one for Civil War era but this is 5 stars.
Do you think you'll be the guy - to make the Queen of the Angels sigh?
