Free Book Talk with David Goetz at 1:30 PM on his latest book “Ever the Gray Ghost: Colonel John Singleton Mosby and the Lincoln Conspiracies.”
About the Book:
David Goetz begins by examining the background of individuals and groups from both sides in the War Between the States who wanted to capture or kill Confederate President Jefferson Davis and U. S. President Abraham Lincoln.
It is a fascinating story and offers new insights and focuses on numerous attempts to capture or kill Abraham Lincoln. Although Colonel Mosby’s and his Rangers’ roles have been discussed in many books and publications, Goetz is the first to write a book considering Mosby as an integral part of the Lincoln conspiracies.About the Author:
David Goetz owns Mosby’s Confederacy Tours, and leads tours in “Mosby’s Confederacy”, including Virginia counties of Fauquier, Loudoun, Warren and Clarke. He has published his second non-fiction book, Ever the Gray Ghost: Colonel John Singleton Mosby and the Lincoln Conspiracies, which considers the clandestine side of the Lincoln Conspiracies and Mosby’s role in them. His first non-fiction work, “Hell is Being a Republican in Virginia”: The Postwar Relationship Between John Singleton Mosby and Ulysses S. Grant, examines the pursuit of peace and reconciliation between North and South by Colonel Mosby and President Grant during and after Reconstruction.
Mr. Goetz has a professional background in public relations, sales and marketing, primarily with non-profit organizations. He holds an undergraduate degree in English from Bellarmine University, Louisville, Kentucky, and a Master of Science in Community Development from the University of Louisville. He is a U.S. Army veteran, received an Honorable Discharge, and lives in Culpeper County, Virginia.
