Based on a TRUE Story
"Your research is so meticulous and your storytelling so captivating."

Isaac N. RUTLAND of Orange County, Florida, vanished during the Civil War. A prominent Floridian, Rutland had been a delegate at Florida's Secession Convention, and he had participated in re-writing the State Constitution in April, 1861. The father of four young children at the start of the War, two survivors, in the 1880s, decide to go in search of their father. In desperation, his son travels to far away Washington, DC, which turns up a long buried file folder labeled, 'The Rutland Mule Matter.' The file folder is true! The characters are real!
  A civil war story never before told....
THE RUTLAND MULE MATTER

THE PERFECT COMPANION GIFT
SEVEN HONORABLE FLORIDIANS

For the first time ever, this book introduces each of the SEVEN Floridians who cast the NO votes to Secession. This book starts out by describing the scene at Tallahassee in January 1861 as delegates met to decide the future of their State. In addition, a brief biography of each of the seven delegates is provided. This information was gathered while writing my acclaimed history Novel, THE RUTLAND MULE MATTER.
