Why Pittsburgh (PA) is My New Favorite City...

Well, it may not be the best of reasons, but it's as good as any: a reviewer for the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review had something nice to say (scroll to bottom of link for full review) about my first book, Lincoln's Labels! On Sunday, 29 March, 2009, in his monthly "Page of Books" reviews, Adam Wallace wrote:

"Because of its business-based perspective, Lincoln's Labels...stands out among a host of new Lincoln-themed books marking 2009's 200th anniversary of the 16th president's birth. James M. Schmidt...explores producers who acted as Civil War suppliers...Readers will gain new insight into still-familiar brand names, the Civil War and its costs and difficulties."

Nice, huh?! Thanks Mr. Wallace!
