Get ready for a rousing rebel yell as bestselling author H.W. Crocker, III (Robert E.

Lee had a higher regard for African Americans than Lincoln did, this is the “P.I.G.” that every Civil War buff and Southern partisan will want on their bookshelf, in their classroom, and under their Christmas tree.

I work in communications and public affairs. I try to squeeze in as much reading as I can while still spending time with my wife and two kids (and cheering on the Pittsburgh Steelers and Michigan Wolverines during football season – oh, and watching golf too).
