My Name is Ken Williams, a Civil War fiction reviewer. I have been interested in the Civil War for the past 47 years, ever since my father gave me a comic book on the War at age three. I wish I still had that book, be worth a good buck now! Presently I have over 1000 different titles on the War or related American history and to my family’s chagrin; it takes up all parts of the house.
I graduated from Gettysburg College with a B.A. and worked for a short time with the NPS at Gettysburg (ah to get to talk Civil War all day and be paid for it!) But, alas, I needed to make a living more than what Uncle Sam could provide and got into the business world. I currently run the Accounts Receivable division for a large Pittsburgh area behavioral healthcare agency.
I continue to stay very involved with Civil War history- being on the review board of the “Civil War News” , doing several public presentations of the War each year and taking much too long on my own book project on my ancestor’s unit – the 11th Pennsylvania Infantry (the “old Eleventh”, not the 11th Reserves, that’s another story). I also used to reenact when I had time and strength.
