More on American Queen:

I spoke about "American Queen" on March 24 before about 100 people at the Cincinnati History Museum. While there, I stayed in the hotel in Cincinnati's beautiful old Art Deco skyscraper, the Carew Tower. This is the hotel's Palm Court, which looks like something out of a 1930s Hollywood movie.

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.


About American Queen:

My radio interview on November 11 with Dr. Alvin Jones:

Today (November 3) American Queen reached #4 on Amazon among Civil War book about women (really #3 since 1 and 2 are the same book, different formats).

American Queen is now available through Amazon and other internet booksellers and is on the physical shelves at Barnes & Noble.
