I write of those brave soldiers who fought during the Civil War, and their families, to honor them, be they Union or Confederate. They were all Americans... Gus Filegar

Background Information

Civil War amateur historian for seventeen years. I guess, I would have to say a major influence was my oldest brother, and the fact I grew up during the cold war. I now present, in first person, the life of a Union Soldier, 1862-1865, that fought with the Twentieth Maine Regiment. His name: Nathan Small Clark. A lot of my writing is created through this citizen soldiers 'mind'. Though I have never met him in the physical sense, I have through the writng in his diary.Also, I have spent many hours on Civil War battlefields, the last ten years, from Gettysburg to Antietam, Cold Harbor, Petersburg, Wilderness and more. Oh, such brave and courageous men . . . on both sides. We must never forget, the soldiers, be they with North or South, were all Americans.


I have finished, completed, and followed through on the first of many manuscripts to come! My author signature is James "Gus" Filegar
On July 3rd, 2003, in Gettysburg Pa., I had the priviledge and honor of meeting with the Great Grandson of Nathan S. Clark, the citizen soldier on which Fathers Sons and Brothers is based. Descendants of Sidney Clark, a brother of Nathan, of whom I also write of in the novel, were also in town. We had quite a time, exchanging information and photographs. After the historical fiction series is complete, I will then write and have published a biography of Nathan S. Clark. This has been a remarkable journey for myself, and I hope to bring you, the reader into it as well!
