New Civil War Novel ~ Jenkins Confederate Blockade Runner ~One of Florida's Decorated Heroes

Jenkins: Confederate Blockade Runner (Volume 1)'Jenkins: Confederate Blockade Runner', A Civil War Novel. Passionately told, thoroughly researched. This exciting true story is based on the lite of C. T. Jenkins, Florida's Confederate hero, who maintained a photograph album of his wife's family - the Colburn's of Vermont - while imprisoned at Fort Warren prison, for blockade running off the coast of Florida. The vintage album features A. V. Colburn, AAG, Jenkins' brother-in-law assigned to the command of George B. McClellan. The composition of the album hints at anti-Lincoln sentiments in a family whose loyalty was torn between the Union and the Confederacy.

    Lynnette, I'm totally thrilled to find my clip, and novel, posted on your blog page. It's exciting because, newly designed, "JENKINS: Confederate Blockade Runner", has been picked up by Haslam's Books in St. Petersburg; selected for circulation by the St. Petersburg library system, and is making its way on the IndieBound circuit (3 stores). Thank you for featuring this exciting tale of my ancestral uncle! ~*~ Emily Hill
