Seize the (reenacting) Day!

"Seize the Day!" contains a distillation of the best available practices now deployed by reenactors who want to get in the 1860s and stay there for the duration of an event. The book describes how any reenactor can easily live the life of a Civil War soldier, using the equipment and technology they used.

About William J Watson

I write books about history for people who wish they'd been there when it was happening. I also write books helping people make history happen again. I've also written one contemporary murder mystery set on the Jersey Shore, and have another in the works.

I was a career newspaper journalist until 2010 and now I'm a full-time writer of books, on my own hook. I have more words in print than Stephen King. Unfortunately, they are mostly in newspapers rather than books. This will change.

I live in a rhododendron thicket outside Stroudsburg, Pa., with my wife, my youngest son, three big rowdy dogs (Aiden, Devin, Chachi), three happy cats (Chienne, Niko, Midget) and an occasional wandering 300-pound black bear who is called anything she wants to be called on any given day. I enjoy Civil War living history, and I'm available for presentations at schools for "the life of the common soldier." I also enjoy watching Norm Abram, fixing things, and answering email about the books. Occasionally I build a boat.
