The old steamer trunk that used to belong to Aunt Donsy was now a coffee table in Delores’ living room where the Searcy family gathered after Clarence’s funeral, it was one of the few family possessions left from the previous generation. The group conversation began to focus on our shared memories and questions about Aunt Donsy’s trunk. Until that conversation we each only had questions, but no complete answers… When did the trunk become so mysterious, and why? Where did the trunk come from, and what were the secret contents? Aunt Donsy’s trunk became a conduit as the family pieced together the fragments of information that each one knew. It was like putting a puzzle together as our history began to take shape to form a picture of one family: The righteous, and the unscrupulous; the determined and the pretenders; the strong and the fragile.

It was a dark time, but a light shone the way. It was a time of sadness, but also a time of joy. Green Grove was a place not only in terms of geography, but also in terms of a community with a mindset and paradigm of unparalleled and unending proportions. A Grateful People: An Historical Account of the Founding of a Community, chronicles the lives of the people who inhabited this piece of God’s green earth—Green Grove, Lumpkin, Georgia.

In Green Grove, some owned their land and taught their children to do the same, while others sharecropped and lived a different kind of life trying as best they could to eke out a living working for the landowner. They may have been working for a man who treated them differently while their parents taught them that being different did not make them less. It was because of Green Grove—the physical and psychological place—that the children who lived there were able to become productive citizens throughout the United States of America and the world.

A Grateful People chronicles the life of a place that broke through the challenges of the times to create a place of hope where dreams of success became a reality with hard work and perseverance.

By Charles E. Farnsworth

Whirlwind & Storm introduces us to the colorful and impetuous Lieutenant Colonel Charles Farnsworth, a Connecticut cavalryman in the Union Army. Farnsworth was fiery, ambitious, and bold, sometimes a little too bold for his own good---in combat, in business ventures, and in the river crossing that ended his life tragically early. Drawing from a rich and previously ignored trove of letters and diaries, Farnsworth’s great-grandson and namesake, a military veteran himself, has done a marvelous job of bringing alive this officer in all his flawed glory.”

Adam Hochschild, author of To End All Wars: A Story of Loyalty and Rebellion, 1914-1918 and other books.

“With excellent research and clear writing, Whirlwind & Storm paints an impartial, intriguing, and entertaining account of the author’s privileged ancestor, who served heroically with the First Connecticut Cavalry battalion in the Civil War. Before, during, and after the war “Charlie” Farnsworth exuded those common human traits that so defined him: driven, disciplined, courageous, opportunistic, and passionate. Whirlwind & Storm adds an illuminating, original, and personal work to the collage of our great American heritage.”

Robert B. Angelovich, author of the forthcoming Riding for Uncle Samuel: The History of the First Connecticut Cavalry in the Civil War.

“If you want to know what the Civil War was really like, this is the book for you: an intimate, personal portrait of the war experience and the people who lived it, giving the reader a firsthand view of its realities. It is meticulously researched, authoritatively documented, and gracefully written.”

William Bennett Turner, author of Figures of Speech: First Amendment Heroes and Villains.

“Lieutenant Colonel Charlie Farnsworth of Norwich emerges here as a free-spirited and ambitious young cavalry officer, with unique and often irreverent views on the Civil War and its leaders. His wide experience in the war, including imprisonment in Richmond, is well-researched and very readably presented. I found it especially fun to follow Charlie’s love life through this most enjoyable book.”

Vic Butsch, New London County (Connecticut) Civil War Round Table, Norwich Historical Society.

An intimate look at a young Norwich, Connecticut cavalry officer---in war, love, and his attempts to strike it rich---and his fierce ambition to make his mark in the Civil War and early Reconstruction. Lieutenant Colonel Charles Farnsworth’s letters and diaries form the cornerstone for this short biography about an adventurer who helped organize the First Connecticut Cavalry. The book covers “Charlie’s” near-fatal shooting while searching for Confederate bushwhackers in Virginia, his protests against incompetent Union leadership, his capture and confinement in Richmond’s notorious Libby Prison, his romantic entanglements, his political connections with President Lincoln that sent him south in early 1865, and his tragic struggle to make his mark in Georgia during the early years of Reconstruction.

As a young man, Arturo Rodriguez was always the guardian of the underdog. This theme carried through to his adult life when he became the first Mexican-American Texas Ranger, an intense and dramatic event in South Texas history. In Rodriguez... Texas Ranger! author Rick Harper recounts Rodriguez’s life and law enforcement career.

As Harper tells Rodriguez’s story, he also chronicles many of Texas and Mexico’s significant historical events and their corresponding sociocultural, economic, and racial developmental patterns to demonstrate not only their immediate impact, but also the ways in which these events and patterns framed the region’s present state.

Providing insight into the dynamic nature of Texas during the 1960s and ’70s, Rodriguez... Texas Ranger! tells a tale of Gringos and Chicanos, justice and vengeance, the law and the lawless, pistoleros and politics, sharpshooters and shopkeepers, ranchers and farmers, cowboys and cattle drives, governors and goat headers, and Texas Rangers. It’s about the passing of a frontier system and the emergence of modern times.
