About the Author
Shaun C. Grenan was born in Detroit, Michigan, in 1980. His interest in the Civil War began in grade school, and was furthered by all the books and frequent trips to the library that his mother provided him. In 2000, Shaun fulfilled his dream of moving to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, to live and work in a historical setting. Shaun re-enacts with the 114th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry, Collis Zouaves. He also portrays Colonel Elmer Ellsworth of the 11th New York Volunteer Infantry (the 1st New York Fire Zouaves) for living history and historical presentations. He has recently organized the United States Zouave Battalion, an organization of Union Zouave re-enacting units.
Grenans special areas of study focus on Civil War Zouaves and Elmer Ellsworth. He hopes to tackle both subjects in future publications.
