The Civil War Lover's Guide to New York City
Veteran author Bill Morgan created this book because sadly few Americans associate New York City with the Civil War, however as one of the most populated areas in the nation, then and now, it is filled with over a hundred historical sites and monuments directly related to those four turbulent years. This book pictures and locates them. ......

Hope Farm Press & Bookshop was established in 1959 in
Cornwallville, Greene County, New York, by Charles Dornbusch, just before he retired from
the New York City Public Library. The buildings and land were originally purchased by his
family from the Hope family who had farmed it for years. Thus, it became Hope Farm Press. It was not connected with either the orphanage called
Hope Farm, or Father Devine's Hope Farm, both of which were also in the Hudson Valley.
Charles Dornbusch ran it as a walk-in and mail-order bookstore
for 30 years. He specialized in military history and New York regional interest books.
From his interest in the local history of New York's Hudson Valley and Catskill Mountain
region grew a catalogue of 500 books and pamphlets on New York State, and his remote
Greene County Bookshop became the destination of people from all over the world. His death
in 1990 left a void in the pursuit of the preservation of our heritage that I can only
hope to fill.
I gave away Booktrader on 1/1/2009 and opened
Hope Farm Press & Bookshop on Jane Street (the street behind my old shop.) It's still in the Commercial and Historic Business
District, and just a half block off Partition Street. I'm open most afternoons from noon to 5 pm. I look forward to
your visit. Call 800-883-5778 to be sure I'm open.
