historical dramatist R.J. Lindsey. Through extensive
research, a meticulous attention to detail and the use of
only documented speeches, letters and anecdotes, a vivid
living portrait emerges.

One Chicago for founder Paul Harris.

covered wagon and lived in a sod house, and joined the
Kansas Volunteers during the Civil War.
