What's Next?

Recently I have received several questions about what is next?  Presently I am outling and researching two books, both of a different nature from Caught Between Three Fires.

The first endeavor will be titled, "The Burnt District."  This very focused work will provide the history and documentation surrounding what became known as "the burnt district."   Efforts will be made to quantify the amount of damage as well as the cost to Jackson, Cass, Bates, and Vernon counties.  It currently has five chapters.

The second book well underway at present is a biography of R.L.Y. Peyton.  "Lud" Peyton represented the 14th Missouri Senatorial District in the Missouri Senate when the Civil War began.  Peyton represented Missouri in the Confederate Senate and died in September 1863.  Peyton's role and significant presence in western Misssouri has been lost to the ages since his death. 

Research is well underway on both books.
