Author John Mitchell, Grand Traverse: The Civil War Era, signs his books at Horizon Books.
While the bonds uniting North and South frayed under the weight of slavery, and then broke into the violence of the American Civil War, the wilderness harbors along the coast of Grand Traverse blossomed into booming port towns.
The story of Grand Traverse during the era is an account of a place and a nation rising to their shared destiny, one settled, the other redefined, during the epic struggle.
All who feel a connection to Northern Michigan should read this book.
