    Thank you for writing Stonewall Goes West. I enjoyed reading it, and look forward to the next in the series.
    One question.
    At the conclusion of President Davis’s speech in Dalton, “…Jackson clapped loudly,… ”
    With one hand?

    Maybe he was clapping by slapping his one hand across the back of his neck.

      Or maybe he was doing a Bart Simpson. Remember when Lisa was trying to teach him zen, and she asked “what is the sound of one hand clapping?” Bart actually demonstrated.

    Ha!Any author who knows his Simpsons is OK in my book. Already enjoying book I. I’ll start in on book II soon after.
