The book began with an email from Mingus to McClure:

“I am collecting some really neat stories and oral traditions from York County citizens … as I speak to various groups,” he wrote. “With the 150th anniversary of the Civil War coming up soon, would you be willing to co-write … an anthology of all the collective stories that we may have between us?”
