Book launch party for American Queen

My book launch party on October 30 at the Redeye Grill in Manhattan was a big success. About 40 attended, including a dozen descendants of Kate Chase, and one of Nettie's great grandsons. Ninety-two-year old Ann Donaldson, who knew Kate's daughters Ethel and Portia, was there. Several  people came in period costume, among them professor Richard Vangermeersch as Chief Justice Salmon P. Chase. Photos of the event can be seen below and on my Facebook page.
