Two New Book Kickstarter Projects I Recommend

Tony Reynolds is doing a book about the Black Soldiers that fought in France in World War One.  This book will include stories of the amazing "Harlem Hellfighters",  the 369th, a regiment that was highly decorated by France and almost ignored back in the United States.  It is no wonder that many African American soldiers chose to stay in France after the war, as they were treated so much better by the French.  Go to:

The second project that I am very enthusiastic about is a behind the scenes look at "The Lost Colony" theatrical production that has been telling the story of the first colony, founded before Jamestown, that had disappeared when the English returned.  This show is presented outdoors with the ocean as a backdrop and has been produced every summer for 80 years.  As you can tell I am partial to books about American History.  Go to:
