Dr. Franklin W. Hamilton, a retired English professor from Flint, Michigan with childhood roots in Southern Illinois, has written a book chronicling the journey of his great-grandmother, who travelled from Tennessee to Illinois during the Civil War. Nancy Hamilton, took her five children (ages 2-15) by wagon and camped and drove west across Tennessee for about 350 miles until she reached the farm of a cousin in Braden Valley, near Dale, in Hamilton County, Illinois. They left their Tennessee home because of threats to their life and property. She did this after losing her husband who, with his brother and several nephews, walked across the Tennessee state line into Kentucky to enlist in the Union Army (5th Tenn. Vol). Harvey lived only about 9 months after his enlistment.  He died in the Stones River Battle and is buried in the National Cemetery in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.

Övrig information

I grew up on a farm in Hamilton County in Southern Illinois near McLeansboro, Illinois. In 1949 I received the B.A. and M.A. degree in English from Southern Illinois University. After graduation, like many writers, I taught at various high schools in Illinois, then colleges in Tennessee, Illinois, Kansas and Michigan. While teaching I finished two degrees in education from Kansas State in Emporia and a doctorate from University of Kansas where I did my study on Thoreau.

For three summers in the early 1950's, I was in the creative writing workshop at the State University of Iowa. While there I became good friends with the poet William Stafford and we remained friends for the rest of his life.

In the 1960's and 1970's I published poetry in small literary magazines in the U.S. and England. During this time, I found a publisher in London, England who issued two of my poetry books: LEAF SCAR (1965) and LOVE CRY (1970). Leaf Scar received a short review in Saturday Review of Literature. But early on, I discovered that in publishing poetry, one does it for love of the art and not for money.

From 1974 to 1979 I published a small national literary magazine the HURON
REVIEW, with issues twice a year. Also during the 1970's I started a small private press, WALDEN PRESS.

I retired from teaching in 1986, and I have continued to write when the creative urge lets me feel the life spark again. I write about changes in nature, the daily happenings around us, the joy and adjustment one must make in life. I still feel the excitement and joy of watching life through poetry.
