William Morgan will discuss his book A Civil War Lovers Guide to New York City: Forgotten Historical Sites of the City. Few Americans associate New York City with the Civil War, but the most populated metropolitan area in the nation, then and now, is filled with scores of monuments, historical sites, and resources directly related to those four turbulent years. Veteran author Bill Morgan’s The Civil War Lover’s Guide to New York City examines more than 150 of these largely overlooked and often forgotten historical gems.
Bill Morgan is a writer, editor, and archival consultant who has lived in New York City for more than thirty years. He is the author of more than two dozen guidebooks and texts including Literary Landmarks of New York. Since the 1970s he has worked as an archivist and librarian.
