Our Rotary Club thoroughly enjoyed hearing from Kevin as our speaker at a recent club meeting.  We have many educators and history buffs in our club, and his presentation was engaging and well researched.  He presented in a way that was interactive and made the topic of the Civil War as it pertained to Indiana's involvement very interesting .
It was great to hear how that important time in history related to our local community!  I would recommend his presentation to any group, young or old!

The storyline was captivating. The back and forth and following up with each of the main characters was well done. I have been to the 22 major battlefields of the Civil War. All the back and forth in Virginia, the trip to Andersonville brings back many fond memories of my trips there.

Every high school and college student should be required to read the introduction to your books. Excellent books!
Well written and researched.

Your program was A+, and highly informational and educational.  Your presentation pacing was spot-on and the amount of information covered was excellent.  Your engagement of all ages that attended is to be commended, as was your recognition of the military veterans in the group.
