Selling Books

I will be selling copies of my books, Our Heritage: Down by the Depot in Ypsilanti, and Footnotes in History, at the Ypsilanti Farmers's Market on Saturday, May 28, from 8:00 A. M. until 2:00 P. M. Our Heritage is a history of the Depot Twon section to the city, and includes the story of the the Michigan Central Gardens, The Lewis Horse Exchane a gambling operation, and the Great Ypsilanti Train Robbery of 1916, and much more.

Footnotes in History is a collection of the stories published by the Ypsilanti Courier, the first year I was with the paper. Stories include the strange hosue of Charles Jarvis, how the first blood spilled in the Civil War ended up on a shelf in the Michigan State Normal School (now EMU) Science Museum. As well as the story of Miss Mildred Young, whose life was saved by her corset; as well as the time a riot broke out at a meeting of the Salvation Army.

Copies of Our Heritage ($15) and Footnotes in History ($20) can also be purchased from me by writing to: James Mann, Post Office Box 980773, Ypsilanti, MI 48198. Please add $3.00 to cover shipping and handling.
