As I work through a career transition my progress on “Times That Try Men’s Souls” slowed to a crawl. By happy coincidence, in the last few days I have reengaged and have refined a few of the pivotal chapters: those dealing with the fighting on Long Island, specifically the Battle of Brooklyn. As I put the finishing touches on that section, I realized that tonight marks the 239th Anniversary of the opening shots of the Battle of Brooklyn! Truly an auspicious sign!

God willing this time next year my readers will be able to mark the 240th Anniversary by reading about the battle from Gideon Hawke’s perspective.
