 Kentucky Raider: Private Commodore Perry Snell, CSA and the Capture of General Edward Henry Hobson and his Order Book at Cynthiana, Kentucky, June 11, 1864 during General John Hunt Morgan’s Last Kentucky Raid.

“Using a captured (liberated) Union Order Book, kept in the family 150 years, Karvel illuminates the Civil War experiences of one Confederate cavalryman riding with Morgan’s Raiders and their Last Kentucky Raid.”

George attended the University of Colorado earning a B.S., M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Accounting and Finance. After a career as a professor, at St. Cloud State and the University of St. Thomas, and work as an author and consultant, George retired in 2012.  Since then he has studied and researched his great-great grandfather who fought for the Confederacy during the Civil War.   “Kentucky Raider,” the result of his research was published in 2016.
