My brother Zack recently received the Florida Historical Society's Charlton Tebeau Award for the best general interest book in 2010 on a Florida historical topic. A Small but Spartan Band is the first book to systematically describe the role Floridians played in Lee's Army of Northern Virginia. The book, published with co-author James C. Edmonds by the University of Alabama Press, is a riveting account of the hardships and heroism of a relatively small group of Southern partisans who fought for their country, the Confederate States of America.

Zack is a native Floridian. He graduated from the University of Florida, then obtained his law degree from Memphis State University. He taught for many years and is now semi-retired.

Zack and I are currently working together on a historical true crime book.
