Books available at SHS's gift shop

In preparation of the 150th anniversary of Morgan's Raid into Ohio, "Morgan's Great Raid: The Remarkable Expedition from Kentucky to Ohio" by Cincinnati native David L. Mowery, takes a new look at this unprecedented event in American history.
A military operation unlike any other on American soil, Morgan's Raid was characterized by incredible speed, superhuman endurance and innovative tactics. One of the nation's most colorful leaders, Confederate general John Hunt Morgan, took his cavalry through enemy-occupied territory in three states in one of the longest offensives of the Civil War. The effort produced the only battles fought north of the Ohio River and reached farther north than any other regular Confederate force. Included are 25 maps and more than 40 illustrations.
Also available at the gift shop is a book by Tim Ginter, local minister, titled "Living Life Forward." This book "introduces a series of revelational principles bound to assist and inspire. Richard Theiss, writer of his own book, "Surprise, Surprise" and available in the gift shop, comments on this book, Living Life Forward "what a gift."
