I started another novel a few days ago, and it’s not about airplanes, flying or families of German ancestry. Those will keep coming, but this novel is different. It’s about a young fellow named Caleb King who joins the Confederate Army at nineteen and has exactly ten minutes of combat experience when he and his sqaud are captured at First Manassas and sent to the Old Capitol Prison in Washington, D. C. While held there, he is introduced to baseball. The rest of the story is about his life in prison and also about the games played between guards and prisoners. This actually did happen, and I’m having a good time finding out what I need to know to write a convincing story. I’ll report my progress every once in a while, and if my publisher likes it, my Civil War baseball novel could be out in about a year. Stay tuned and thanks for reading!
