imageI finished my master’s thesis on the diary of Almanzo Litchard.  He guarded Washington, D. C. during the first year of the Civil War.  During this time, he visited the Smithsonian, the White House, and Mount Vernon, met President Lincoln, and listened to Congressional debates.  My research adds historical significance to his diary entries as well as telling his life story.

My book can be purchased here.
