2012 1463579772 / 9781463579777 First Edition Paperback New SIGNED BY AUTHOR
Valor in a Border State is a 10 year compilation of biographies, amazing stories, photos and maybe even a little folklore of the brave soldiers of St. Mary's County, Maryland who gave up everything to cast thier lot with the newly formed Confederate States of America. In 1860, unimaginable choices had to be made by our great grandfathers. The choice of state vs. country, North vs. South, to enlist or to remain neutral, ideals vs. beliefs. One could only guess at the choices we would have made had we been living in St. Mary’s County, Maryland during the Civil War. This book brings to life some of the men of St. Mary’s, their stories, their struggles and their lives. The shaping of a new nation or the reshaping of an old one squarely rested upon their shoulders. About the author: Rob Long was born in Leonardtown, Maryland in 1969. He now resides in Lusby, Maryland with his wife Karrie and their three children Emily, Madison and Shayne. He has worked as a mechanic and mechanical planner at Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power Plant for 22 years. Robert enjoys being a husband, father, Civil War re-enactor, local historian, Lt. Commander of the Captain Vincent Camalier Camp 1359 Sons of Confederate Veterans, author and Master Mason.
