Tale for The Ages

I am an ordinary American. Yet I am blessed by extraordinary ancestors.

Foremost among them is my great-grandfather, Archibald Stark Van Orden. At age 18, Archie was a US Cavalryman in the Civil War. The adventures and dangers he encountered confound the imagination.


Inspired by the exploits of his youth, I am writing a book that tells his tale.

As Archie wrote to his family: “Half the truth hath not yet been told.”

Now, 150 years later, the hidden-half of truth will finally see the light of day.
