Lisa Samia's upcoming collection of poems and essays are truly inspired writing born from her great love for American history and appreciation for the people who endured the Civil War. This project is near and dear to her heart, as shown in "No More on Bended Knee."
As an added personal touch, many photos in the collection were taken on location by Lisa as she visited historical sites on her many travels.
Each essay has a theme, such as a soldier facing a battle or a woman who lost a man she adored. Some feature people or places, like "Miss Louisa" and "My Darling Virginia." Others recount events that changed history with "Shiloh."
This special collection honors the unknown men and women whose faces were never photographed and names may have been forgotten, but the heartache and trials they endured shaped the foundation of America.
COMING SOON!! FINAL EDITS IN THE WORKS.
RELEASE DATE TO BE ANNOUNCED IN FEBRUARY!!
"COMPLETED!!!! 'The Nameless and The Faceless of the Civil War' a Collection of 27 Poems and 27 Essays…April 2018. The poems are narratives, and in each poem the (narrator) is describing an actual historical event during the Civil War. Each associated essay is a further historical description. The events range from Shiloh, Fredericksburg, The Petersen House (where Lincoln died), Richard Garrett’s Farm, and many many more. In this collection it gives a voice to those who perhaps never made into the history books, a chance perhaps be heard for the very first time."
"May the force be with me!"
