Published in Footnote #1



Leah had two pieces published in the literary journal of history, Footnote #1. The first piece, “To the statue of Captain John Riley Parker on Lexington Battle Green Square:” is an epic metered-verse poem about one of her heroes during the Battles of Lexington and Concord, sparking the American Revolution. The second piece, “Small sacrifices,” is a short story about two soldier friends during the Civil War, one who wants to return home to his wife, and one who wants to stay at war so he never has to see his wife again. You can find these pieces alongside over a hundred other pieces of historical writing in the inaugural issue of Footnote, a literary journal dedicated to personal and non-scholarly historical and contemporary views on history told through poetry, maps and historical photographs, fiction, essays, articles, and nonfiction by various authors, both contemporary and historical.
