James J. Shields - American Hero

My friend Dr. J. Sean Callan has created an introductory video to his biography of James J. Shields - American hero. Dr. Callan wrote a wonderful biography of the three time U.S. Senator, hero of the Mexican War and the only Union general to defeat Stonewall Jackson. Some politicians in Illinois tried to obliterate the memory of the man who saved Illinois from bankruptcy, challenged Lincoln to a duel and made peace with the Sioux.
Save our History! This is an American life that too many entrusted with our history choose to ignore.

Give this link a click and watch Dr. Sean Callan's presentation of an American hero.

Then get his book:
Great work Dr. Callan!

Thank you for the post. James Shields is a relative of mine, and we are researching some family history. I will need to look into that book.
