Dennis Frye to Sign Copies of His Newest Book September Suspense: Lincoln’s Union in Peril
HAGERSTOWN, Md – Dennis Frye will be signing copies of his newly published book, “September Suspense: Lincoln’s Union in Peril” on Friday, June 15 from 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. in the Visitor Welcome Center in downtown Hagerstown.
“September Suspense” explores September 1862 as the most trying month for President Abraham Lincoln and the nation as General Robert E. Lee threatened the North, marching his Confederates onto Union soil. Frye draws from a voluminous cache of period newspapers to expertly demonstrate how fragile the national bond had become by the autumn of 1862.
