LETTER: ''Johnny Green of the Orphan Brigade'' nominated for book list
Ben Breeding suggests a second Orphan Brigade book for Adair History-15 Most Important Books
To the editor:
"History of The Orphan Brigade" by H. Porter Thompson, would be a worthy addition to this list, as suggested by Dean Adams.
Another for consideration is "Johnny Green of The Orphan Brigade", edited by my wife's uncle, Dr. A.D. Kirwan.
Dr. Kirwan was a most versatile individual, having served as head football coach at the University of Kentucky prior to Bear Bryant, later becoming president of the University.In between, he earned a law degree as well as a Ph.D. in history. He authored several books on U.S. history and politics.
Several Adair Countians served in the Orphan Brigade. My great-grandfather's first cousin, Rev. James Breeding, a prominent Methodist minister at Breeding, from 1834-1886, had three sons in the Orphan Brigade. One son, David Cassidy Breeding, died at Shiloh. Col. Robert Paxton Trabue, from Columbia, was a three-time commander of the brigade.
What are 15 most important books related to Adair County history?
