While I Was Away on Vacation…
July 7, 2008
Gene Hackman posed for this photograph with everyone’s favorite black Confederate, H.K. Edgerton. The photograph was taken at Malaprop’s bookstore in Asheville, North Carolina where Hackman, along with his co-author, discussed and signed copies of their new book, Escape From Andersonville. I’m not sure which one knows more about Civil War history.
Note to Publisher: Please don’t send me a review copy.
