|History authors plan Monroe signing event|
Windows a bookshop in Monroe will be the scene of a gathering of history book authors at 5 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 28.
The authors will each speak briefly, and then they will conduct a question-and-answer session with the audience. A booksigning will follow.
Each of the authors has written about wars in which the United States has been involved. Gary Moore has written "Playing with the Enemy," the story of his father's service during World War II when he was part of the navy crew that was sent to Camp Ruston to guard the German U-Boat prisoners who were brought there after their capture off the coast.
Ted Savas, whose book publishing company Savas Beatie has produced many works of history, is author of "A Guide to the Battles of the Revolution."
The two remaining authors write about the Civil War. Terence Winschel is the chief historian at the Vicksburg Battlefield National Park. His two-volume work is called "Triumph and Defeat: The Vicksburg Campaign."
Gary Joiner has written nine books. Most have centered on the Red River Campaign which has long been overlooked. Among his books are "One Damn Blunder from Beginning to End: The Red River Campaign of 1864," "Mr. Lincoln's Brown Water Navy: The Mississippi Squadron," "Through the Howling Wilderness: The 1864 Red River Campaign and Union Failure in the West," "Shiloh and the Western Campaign of 1862," and "Little to Eat and Thin Mud to Drink: Letters, Diaries, and Memoirs from the Red River Campaign 1863-64."
The History Authors Panel event is free and open to the public.
Seating is limited and will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.
