In 2009 Kevin's book was mentioned in the local county paper. Since that book was released Kevin has been working on his second book that tells the important story of blacks in Loudoun County, VA during the Civil War.
The book is called From Loudoun To Glory
This is Kevin Grigsby's second book, which highlights Loudoun County's African-American heritage. From Loudoun To Glory is about the important role that African-Americans from Loudoun County, Virginia played in the Civil War. They would serve as soldiers, sailors, nurses, spies, and scouts. Over two hundred and fifty African-American soldiers and a dozen sailors from Loudoun served in the Union military during the Civil War.
The same things I said in my first blog about Kevin's book goes for this one. This book has made a bigger initial splash. When I woke up on Sunday morning and saw the Washington Post I saw that Kevin's book was featured on the front page of the paper on A1, above the fold. WOW!!!
The full Washington Post article can be found in the link below. I've also included some screenshots from the paper.
This is one of the proudest moment's in Kevin's life (his kids are #1 and #2 by a long shot) . I couldn't imagine being happier for someone. Years of hard work and dedication will keep this important story alive for many generations to come.
Today - mentioned on the same page with President Obama...tomorrow a picture and meeting with President Obama where you present him with a signed copy...sky is the limit :)
