About the Author

More About the Author

Kelly McMichael wasn't like most
kids in her Texas hometown, she pickled deer brains in jars and dissected minnows. She demanded cherry pies on her birthday and memorized Victorian house plans. She decided to be a writer in 5th grade after reading a book by Ruth Chew. Somebody told her that people from small towns don't become writers so she decided to be an architect, or a lawyer, or maybe a hippie. Ends up, people from small towns CAN be writers, so that's what she's doing now. That and teaching History to adult college students all over the world (online).

Kelly attended Texas A&M University, earning a B.A. in U.S. History and English. She then completed a M.A. at Baylor University in American Studies and a Ph.D. at the University of North Texas in U.S. History. She likes to garden, walk/hike, read, and listen to live music. She likes to travel and is especially fond of Treasure Beach on Jamaica's south coast. She lives on a farm in a tiny little community where people appreciate good stories.

Kelly McMichael takes us on a tour of all the monuments in Texas that honor Confederate, Union, and Women for their sacrifices in the Civil War. She researched each little town's efforts to remember their heroes. I was particulary interested in the different carvers and companies and how they secured commissons, worked up designs, and installed the works of art. McMichael also noted how the public felt about the monumnet by including local newspape coverage from the time. The conflicts between the personalities of Frank Teich and Pompeo Coppini was especially interesting; they hated each other and were fierce competitors for the monument commissions. Overall, a great resource.
