Good news!  The draft of Broomsticks to Battlefields 2nd edition has been submitted to my publisher, Deeds Publishing.

This edition includes additional research on Delaware Military Academy and Henry C. Robinett.  It also includes a class mate of Robinett's, David Vickers.  Vickers was captured at the battle of the Wilderness and imprisoned at Camp Oglethorpe in Macon, GA, then moved as Sherman's march began.  His story after the war is quite intriguing.  More to follow.

Well, you are all due an update, sorry for the delay.  I have been working on the firs draft of the second edition of Broomsticks for some time now and I am pleased to report I am about 3/4 of the way through it.  I have added additional information about Delaware Military Academy and some new research related to Robinett and his suicide.  I am hoping to have the firs draft ready for outside review by August.  It has been a grind as I can only work on this around my "real" job work schedule but things are finally moving along.
