Brett Schulte at TOCWOC Reviews Lincoln's Labels!

I want to thank Brett Schulte for posting a very kind review of my first book, Lincoln's Labels: America's Best Known Brands and the Civil War, on his very popular TOCWOC blog today!


"With Lincoln’s Labels, Jim Schmidt has created a fascinating look into what some famous companies of today were up to during the Civil War, one which will appeal to a much wider audience than most Civil War books could ever hope for...

"There were some truly engaging stories told in Lincoln’s Labels...As a result, this book will surely appeal to a much wider audience than your typical battle or campaign study...In fact, I encourage readers who are looking to get friends and family into the study of the Civil War to introduce them to Lincoln’s Labels. Who knows what might happen as a result?"

I couldn't ask for more in the way of an endorsement...Thanks, Brett! And keep up the GREAT work at TOCWOC!
