Hidden History, New Titles, News

The History Press is proud to announce Hidden History of Civil War Oregon by Randol B. Fletcher is now available from Oregon bookstores.

Many Oregonians think of the Civil War as a faraway event or something that happens when the Ducks and the Beavers tangle. Few know that the state raised two Union regiments or that more than ten thousand Union and Confederate veterans made their way to Oregon after the war. In fact, the Beaver State has impressive Civil War ties, including the battle death of Senator Edward Baker, the Long Tom Rebellion in Eugene and famous figures like U.S. Marshal Virgil Earp. Join Civil War enthusiast Randol B. Fletcher as he explores the tales behind the monuments and graves that dot today’s landscape and unearths the Hidden History of Civil War Oregon.
