New marketing for Gerald Dougherty’s “Ann's Letters: A Newly Released Collection of Letters from the American Civil War” (published by iUniverse) is targeting readers of major literary publications. Advertisements for “Ann’s Letters” will soon be released in Foreword Reviews, New York Times Review of Books and Ingram’s Advance Catalog.

In “Ann’s Letters,” Dougherty’s collection of 32 letters – 19 from soldiers and 13 from friends or family – provide an intimate look into the minds of soldiers and civilians of the 19th century. Dougherty hopes readers will have a new appreciation for modern conveniences after reading of a time when the only way to contact someone was sending a letter and waiting for one in return.

An excerpt from “Ann’s Letters”:

“We’re now in Georgia, near Kingston. We have halted here to wrest(sic) a day or two; and then we expect to resume our journey. Save yesterday, and to day, we have not been from under the sound of the Cannon, for the last two weeks. We have not done much vary (sic) hard fighting, but have been skirmishing considerable. The rebs are in full retreat, and it is unknown to us, where they will make the next stand.”
