    • Sorry. I fixed it to make it easier to see. This is just a little blog maintenance I’m doing, to help people read some of my past posts, so you might start seeing more of these, as I progress along.


  1. I’m almost done with your CA Republic history book, which I’m sure covers a lot of the stuff we learned in public school here in the Golden State.

    Over the past 15 years or so, during which I lived in TN, I learned about the State of Franklin. I have no idea if it’s part of the public school history curriculum there, but I thought you might find it as interesting as I did especially if you’ve never heard of it before.

    • Thanks for reading my book. It’s always a thrill to know someone can endure reading one of my works, front-to-back.

      I’m a California native, and was probably sleeping in public school, because I don’t remember learning much about how we took California from Mexico. I learned the general facts, but not many details. So I wrote this book partly as a way of educating myself more in-depth on the subject.

      Oh yeah, I learned about the State of Franklin in public school. As I recall, the would-be state was located in what is now northeastern Tennessee. I don’t recall why the plan was scuttled, but I’ll bet it had something to do with slavery.
