Cinders & Silence: Chapter 1

"Cinders and Silence" presents a historical chronicle of Missouri's burnt district.  I addresses two key questions about the destruction.  Why did the burnt district occur in Missouri and why was it forgotten.  The first chapter deals with the period from 1820 to 1854.  Several events during this period moved the focus of the slave debate to western Missouri and several innovations in weapon technology served to increase the intensity of the fighting.

Yesterday, January 10th, I shared a copy of the draft of "Cinders and Silence" with the Burnt District Publishing Company.  I am editing and developing maps for the book and project to have it ready for publication no later than April 30, 2013.  Significant editing and content additions are needed to reach a final state but progress has been exciting.

Returned this past Saturday, Dec. 8, from a week in Chicago writing.  I returned to Parkville with a working draft of "Cinders and Silence."  There is still a considerable amount of work to be done but the framework is in place.  Issues to be resolved but definite progress.
