From the wonderful group of knowledgeable scholars on Frankfort history comes a new book for the Civil War junkies. Poor Richard’s Books in downtown Frankfort was the perfect place to have a book signing and release on Friday night for the new Frankfort Heritage Press release of Embattled Capital: Frankfort, Kentucky in the Civil War. This is an extensive book on how Frankfort played a role in the American Civil War written by James Prichard.
Nicky Hughes, former curator of the Capital City Museum, says of this book, “This book, the product of six years of thorough, ground-breaking research by one of Kentucky’s most respected archivists, tells the complicated, unique, and fascinating story of Frankfort, Kentucky’s small-town capital city, in the Civil War. Even the most experienced Civil War history buffs and scholars will find much here that is new.”
If you or someone you know is a Frankfort history buff or even local Civil War history, you’ll find this book is for you! Signed copies of the book make great Christmas gifts for yourself or someone else and can be found at Poor Richard’s Books on Broadway or at the Capital City Museum. I got my copy!
