New Civil War Book is Released
by BWW News Desk - Jan 18, 2017

General William T. Sherman's 1865 Carolinas Campaign receives scant attention from most Civil War historians, largely because it was overshadowed by the Army of Northern Virginia's final battles against the Army of the Potomac. Career military officers Mark A. Smith and Wade Sokolosky rectify this oversight with their newest title, just released by publisher Savas Beatie, 'No Such Army Since the Days of Julius Caesar': Sherman's Carolinas Campaign from Fayetteville to Averasboro, March 1865, a careful and impartial examination of Sherman's army and its many accomplishments. Following the authors' previous work, To Prepare for Sherman's Coming: The Battle of Wise's Forks, March 1865, which comes to a close just prior to the Union occupation of Fayetteville, 'No Such Army' continues with the next stage of the complex developments leading up to the seminal Battle of Bentonville. The authors dedicate their professional training and research and writing abilities to the critical days of March 11-16, 1865, beginning with the capture of Fayetteville and the demolition of the arsenal there, before chronicling the two-day Battle of Averasboro in more detail than any other study. At Averasboro, Lt. Gen. William J. Hardee's Confederates conducted a well-planned and brilliantly executed defense-in-depth that held Sherman's juggernaut in check for two days. With his objective accomplished, Hardee disengaged and marched to concentrate his corps with Gen. Joseph E. Johnston for what would become Bentonville. This completely revised and updated edition of 'No Such Army Since the Days of Julius Caesar' is based upon extensive archival and firsthand research. It includes new original maps, orders of battle, abundant illustrations, and a detailed driving and walking tour for dedicated battlefield enthusiasts. Readers with an interest in the Carolinas, Generals Sherman and Johnston, or The Civil War in general will enjoy this book. 'It is my hope that our book provides insight into a critical phase of one of the most audacious campaigns of the war,' explains Smith. 'Marching 425 miles in enemy territory, faced with extremely difficult terrain, inclement weather conditions, and no viable supply line or communication was a bold and ambitious undertaking! There truly was 'No Such Army Since the Days of Julius Caesar'!' 'No Such Army' is the story of Confederate desperation in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds - Sherman's army,' adds Sokolosky. 'It is our hope that it shines a light on an almost forgotten period of the war that occurred in the Ole North State.' About the Authors: Maj. (Ret.) Mark A. Smith holds a master's in military studies. He is a U.S. Army veteran with 21 years of service, during which he served as a scout platoon leader, held three company commands, and was an Army ROTC instructor at Virginia Tech. Col. (Ret.) Wade Sokolosky is a graduate of East Carolina University and a 25-year veteran of the U.S. Army. Wade is the co-author (with Mark) of 'To Prepare for Sherman's Coming': The Battle of Wise's Forks, March 1865, and the author of Final Roll Call: Confederate Losses during the Carolinas Campaign. He was recently selected to receive the annual T. Harry Gatton Award from the Raleigh Civil War Round Table for his literary success, including 'To Prepare for Sherman's Coming,' and his 'constant efforts in preservation projects and...educating many people on The Civil War' (David Waller, Raleigh CWRT Program Chairman).

by BWW News Desk - Feb 3, 2017

Historian and author, Noah Andre Trudeau has recently been selected to receive the prestigious 2016 Award of Achievement from the Lincoln Group of New York for his new book, Lincoln's Greatest Journey: Sixteen Days that Changed a Presidency, March 24 - April 8, 1865. The award committee's vote was unanimous, according to the Lincoln Group's president Steven R. Koppelman. 'The Award is presented annually to the individual or organization that has done the most to encourage the study and appreciation of Abraham Lincoln,' explained Koppelman. 'In making this award, The Lincoln Group of New York recognizes Lincoln's Greatest Journey as a superb work of research, expertly written, which details an aspect of the Lincoln presidency that has been little studied and a much needed in-depth work.' He went on to state that prior award winners include Doris Kearns Goodwin, Eric Foner, Harold Holzer, and screenwriter Tony Kushner. 'It is a wonderful and humbling honor to receive this prestigious Award of Achievement for Lincoln's Greatest Journey,' said Trudeau. 'It is a special feeling to read the list of past winners along with the memorable books they wrote and to realize my effort is now counted among them. My thanks to the members of the Lincoln Group of New York for making this selection.' 'This is a special study, with keen insights and deep research, so having Noah Andre Trudeau win such a prestigious award is very gratifying,' explained Managing Director Theodore P. Savas. 'Noah been working studying this phase of Lincoln's unique life for a long while and in many ways, and I am especially pleased his work has been recognized in this manner.' About the Book: The most extensively researched and detailed story of these decisive sixteen days at City Point, Lincoln's Greatest Journey provides a narrative laden with many heretofore unpublished accounts. A fresh, more complete picture of Lincoln emerges. This is Lincoln at a time of great personal and national change - the story of how he made peace with the past and became firmly future-focused, all set against a dramatically new narrative of what really happened during those last weeks of his life. It infuses the well-worn Lincoln narrative with fresh sources to fundamentally change an often-told story in ways large and small. About the Author: Noah Andre Trudeau is a history graduate of the State University of New York at Albany. His first book, Bloody Roads South, won The Civil War Round Table of New York's prestigious Fletcher Pratt Award, and enjoyed a cameo appearance in the hit web television series House of Cards. His fourth book, Like Men of War, a combat history of black troops in The Civil War, was honored with the Grady McWhiney Research Foundation's Jerry Coffey Memorial Book Prize.

A New Collection of Poems by One the Greatest Ukrainian Poets of the Twentieth Century Pavlo Tychyna Published by Glagoslav Publications
by BWW News Desk - Feb 11, 2017

With his innovative poetics, deep spirituality and creative word play, Tychyna deserves a place among the pantheon of his European contemporaries such as T.S. Eliot, Ezra Pound, Rainer Maria Rilke, Federico Garcia Lorca, and Osip Mandelstam. His early collections such as Clarinets of the Sun (1918) mark the pinnacle of his creativity and poetically document the emotional and spiritual toll of the Revolution of 1917 as well as The Civil War and its aftermath in Ukraine. John Fizer has noted Tychyna's close affinity with Walt Whitman's cosmism, particularly in his cycle In the Orchestra of the Cosmos. While Tychyna in many ways displays the moral conscience of his times in his early works, later in his life he acquiesced to Soviet authorities in order to survive the horrors of Stalin's regime. He was forced by authorities to refuse a nomination for the Nobel Prize, the only reason for which would have been his Ukrainian ethnicity. This edition of Tychyna's complete early works includes translations of all his major early collections as well as his poetic masterpieces 'Mother was Pealing Potatoes,' 'Funeral of My Friend,' and his highly patriotic 'In Memory of the Thirty.' The volume includes a guest introduction by prominent Ukrainian poet Viktor Neborak. (more...)

He has worked as a voiceover artist in the animation world, co-produces with his wife a family-centered web series called Faces of Offense, and has played a variety of roles on stage in shows such as Tommy, West Side Story, and The Wiz.

Washington in the Actors Repertory Theatre of Simi's production of Ragtime.
