Press release from: PublishAmerica

Frederick, MD March 30, 2007 -- PublishAmerica is proud to present Squelching the Sesesh: Iowa’s Role in the Civil War by Andy Reddick of Mt. Pleasant, Iowa.

With 80,000 volunteers from a total population of only 600,000, Iowa supplied more men per capita in the Civil War than any other Union state. Iowans fought battles on its doorstep and engaged in most of the important campaigns in the West and South. The word “Sesesh” is coined from the word secession and was first applied to describe Missouri Southern sympathizers. This book explores Iowa’s involvement in the battles of the war in great detail and presents the Civil War from Iowa’s standpoint, as they fought long and hard to subdue the rowdy Missourians and other Rebels.

A retired schoolteacher, Andy Reddick is a historian dedicated to research, teaching community college history courses, and writing historical columns for two local newspapers. Iowa’s deep involvement in the Civil War prompted the research that is presented in this interesting volume.

PublishAmerica is the home of 20,000 talented authors. PublishAmerica is a traditional publishing company whose primary goal is to encourage and promote the works of new, previously undiscovered writers. Like more mainstream publishers, PublishAmerica pays its authors advances and royalties, makes its books available in both the United States and Europe through all bookstores, and never charges any fees for its services. PublishAmerica offers a distinctly personal, supportive alternative to vanity presses and less accessible publishers.
