American Home Front
Karen Whiting and Jocelyn Green have co-authored a book called Stories of Faith and Courage from the Home Front (releases in April 2012). While researching home front heroes from all American wars, we've met remarkable women (and men, but mostly women). They are worth sharing with you! For more about the book, including blog, resources, and excerpts, see http://www.homefrontcourage.com.
KAren Whiting's father's stories of WW2 (middle photo shows Dad) and others gave her the passion to write the book about the Home Front of American Wars. He was 16 the day Pearl Harbor was bombed (72 years on Dec 7, 2014).

Old North Church - This church, built in 1723 in a style inspired by English architect Christopher Wren, is the oldest active church building in Boston. It was where Paul Revere ordered lanterns hung ("one if by land, two if by sea, and I on the opposite shore will be") to notify others of British troop movements prior to the Battles of Lexington and Concord.

Old North Church, Boston, Massachusetts. This church, built in 1723 in a style inspired by English architect Christopher Wren, is the oldest active church building in Boston. It was where Paul Revere ordered lanterns hung ("one if by land, two if by sea, and I on the opposite shore will be") to notify others of British troop movements prior to the Battles of Lexington and Concord.
Old North Church (officially, Christ Church in the City of Boston), at 193 Salem Street, in the North End of Boston, is the location from which the famous "One if by land, and two if by sea" signal is said to have been sent. This phrase is related to Paul Revere's midnight ride, of April 18, 1775, which preceded the Battles of Lexington and Concord during the American Revolution.

"One if by land, two if by sea" was the signal used at the Old North Church in the Revolutionary War so the colonials would know if the British were coming across Boston Neck or the Charles River.

Nov 11 - 1864 – American Civil War: Sherman's March to the Sea – Union General William Tecumseh Sherman begins burning Atlanta, Georgia to the ground in preparation for his march south.
THIS PHOTO DEPICTS SHERMAN'S MARCH TO THE SEA. IT LASTED FROM NOVEMBER TO DECEMBER 1864. SHERMAN'S SOLDIERS MARCHED FROM ATLANTA TO SAVANNAH, BURNING EVERYTHING IN THEIR PATH. THEY DESTROYED THE SOUTH'S INFRASTRUCTURE BY DESTROYING RAILROADS, RUINING THEM FOR THE WAR. GRANT THOUGHT THAT THIS WOULD RUIN THE CONFEDERACY FOR THE REST OF THE WAR.

civil war railroads | Sherman's Men Destroying Atlanta Railroads; Barnard, George N., 1819 ...
In a day in which there were no cars or planes, railroads were the fastest means of transportation across land. For this reason, railroads were often the focus of campaigns and battles (i.e. 1st & 2nd Manassas/ Bull Run) in the civil war. During Sherman's "March to the Sea," his men destroyed hundreds of miles of railroad track in order to hamper southern infrastructure. Soldiers would pile the rails over a fire until they were red hot and then bend them into "Sherman's neckties."

Yankee In Atlanta (Heroines Behind The Lines book 3) by Jocelyn Green --- my review http://montanamade.weebly.com/tell-tale-book-reviews/book-review-yankee-in-atlanta-by-jocelyn-green
"Yankee in Atlanta (Heroines Behind the Lines)" by Jocelyn Green // 3rd book in this fabulous series! Any Civil War book fascinates me, but Jocelyn is a very gifted storyteller. The character development makes you feel like you actually know the people!
Yankee in Atlanta by Jocelyn Green // This is 3rd in a series and I have loved every single one. I'm a sucker for Civil War era books anyway & anything about Atlanta is a plus! Green has interesting characters, lots of excitement & great historical detail. When I was halfway through I felt like I'd already read a whole book b/c so much had happened. Highly recommend this series!
In Yankee in Atlanta, Jocelyn Green weaves together the intensity of war with the impact on human lives. We see two women on opposite sides of the battle lines, each experiencing the deprivations of wartime, each reeling from historical events, and each struggling with personal problems. This is Civil War fiction at its best. ~Sarah Sundin. Book giveaway June 30-July 2, 2014!!!
