The Rev. Dr. B. Kathleen Fannin grew up in a military family that moved often. By the time she was eight, she had lived in seven states. She earned her B.A. in Sociology, Psychology, and Anthropology from the University of Texas at Austin. She pursued her Master of Theological Studies at Eden Theological Seminary in St. Louis, Missouri. Her Doctor of Ministry was earned at Wesley Theological Seminary in Washington, D. C. Her varied working career includes time spent as a Park Ranger (Archaeologist) with the U.S. National Park Service, an economic developer, and a college chaplain. She is the great-great granddaughter of two of the writers of the letters in this volume—Oscar A. Stearns and Jennette L. Persons. Oscar served with Co. B of the 13th Vermont Infantry, a nine-month unit whose only battle was Gettysburg. Dr. Fannin’s interest in the Civil War started when she was in High School and discovered some of the songs the soldiers sang. She spent a number of years participating in Civil War reenactments across the United States. Dr. Fannin has authored six other books. Besides writing, she also enjoys watercolor painting, bird watching, caring for her two cats, playing board games, and visiting with friends.
