The History Guy - William Connery

My Book and Myself FROM MAY 1861 UNTIL MARCH 1862, NORTHERN VIRGINIA WAS THE FRONT LINE OF THE WAR BETWEEN THE STATES. MANY FIRST AND IMPORTANT EVENTS HAPPENED IN THE AREA THAT NOW INCLUDES ALEXANDRIA CITY AND ARLINGTON, FAIRFAX, PRINCE WILLIAM & LOUDOUN COUNTIES.

THIS INCLUDES THE ONLY CITY OCCUPIED THROUGHOUT THE WAR; THE FIRST AERIAL RECON; AND THE BIRTH OF THE CONFEDERATE BATTLE FLAG. THE HISTORY PRESS HAS PUBLISHED MY BOOK, CIVIL WAR NORTHERN VIRGINIA 1861, AND I AM AVAILABLE FOR SPEAKING ON THAT CRITICAL TIME. THE BOOK IS AVAILABLE THROUGH AMAZON. I CAN ALSO MAIL OUT SIGNED COPIES FOR $25.00. I ALSO TALK ON HONORING PRESIDENT ROBERT E. LEE, PRESIDENT JOHN TYLER AND THE PEACE CONFERENCE, THE CSS SHENANDOAH AND THE LAST SHOT OF THE CIVIL WAR, AND FORT MCHENRY DURING THE WAR. I WAS BORN AND RAISED IN EAST BALTIMORE (IN THE SHADOW OF THE PATTERSON PARK PAGODA, WHERE 10,000 AMERICAN PATRIOTS WAITED FOR THE BRITISH INVASION IN SEPTEMBER 1814), AND HAVE RESIDED OVER 20 YEARS IN THE BUSH HILL SECTION OF FAIRFAX COUNTY IN WHAT WAS NORTHERN OCCUPIED VIRGINIA. I HAVE WRITTEN OVER THREE SCORE ARTICLES ON MANY CIVIL WAR TOPICS FOR VARIOUS PUBLICATIONS, INCLUDING THE WASHINGTON TIMES AND THE CIVIL WAR COURIER. I CAN BE REACHED AT [email protected] OR CALL ME AT 202-374-3080. ALSO CHECK OUT MY PHOTOS ON FACEBOOK.
