Meet Author Perry Short: Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park

Fort Oglethorpe, GA: In partnership with the National Park Service, Eastern National would like to invite you to meet author, Perry Short on Dec. 8, 2018, 2 p.m.-5 p.m. Short will be available inside the Chickamauga Battlefield Visitor Center to sign his title, Generation of Warriors.

Generation of Warriors: Have you ever thought of the families who lived on lands where Civil War battles took place? What did they do when fighting broke out at their front doors? The Dyers, along with the Brothertons and the Kelleys, were among families who resided in North Georgia where the Battle of Chickamauga occurred in September 1863. Did these families engage in battle? Did they survive? This historical novel presents a plausible scenario of events that places its focus on the family of thirty-five year old Spillsby Dyer, an officer in the Confederate Army, who lived on these grounds and was a father of eight children during the Civil War. Loaded with historical facts, Short's writings allow the reader to recognize the impossible circumstances that these families encountered.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Perry Short, a resident of Bartlett, TN near Memphis, attended the University of Memphis. Short spent much of his time traveling to the Chickamauga Battlefield to research Spillsby Dyer. Passionate about Civil War History, Short has been involved with re-enactments and has played a part in the Civil War movies Glory, Gettysburg, Gods & Generals, and North and South II.
