Ronald White American Ulysses StrandAfter seven years of research and writing, including visits to countless archives, battlefields, and places, I was thrilled when Random House published American Ulysses on October 4, 2016. I am so grateful for all the warm responses I have received and the stories I have been able to share during the past three months of a national book tour. Along the way I have visited old friends, met new ones, and met special people such as General (Ret) David Petraeus and CPAN’s Brian Lamb, to name just two.

As we close out the year, I want to take this opportunity to list the varied kinds of recognition the book has received.
