I'm pleased to report that I'll be a guest of the Chicago Scots for their Saturday, January 6 Scottish American History Forum at 2800 Desplaines Avenue, North Riverside, IL 60546, 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.--giving a presentation on my Sound the Trumpet, Beat the Drums: Horse-Mounted Bands of the U.S. Army, 1820 -- 1940 (University of Oklahoma Press, 2016). There will also be books for sale and I'll be available for signing. Please see the ad for the book on the inside cover in the last issue (Fall 2017) of Military Collector & Historian.
For Company members and other individuals not in the Chicago area who are purchasing the book through local bookstores or online sources including Amazon, I'm happy to sign and send author plates. Simply send me an email message at email@example.com.
