I am a historian and a former member of the Texas Legislature. I have written many papers on the post-Civil War era from 1865 - 1877 that conflict with widely held belief's of fellow historians.
For 20 years I worked commissioning new hospitals in 3rd world countries for the World Health Organization. Retired from that now, I find myself wanting to write again. Most of my publications are historical essays that may differ from what is currently being taught to the masses. I do in-dept research for my works and strive to stay away from opinion. I do; however, suggest why I believe early historians deliberately distorted facts.
