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.  ......

I'm reorganizing my priorities to create a new online store 
that will primarily focus on genealogy and Hope Farm Press titles. But, I have thousands of other new books in stock (some now listed as "out of print") that
when they're gone - they're gone - so shop now for the best selection.  In some cases you won't see a title listed. Send me the title - I may have it anyway. This is the best way to find the largest selection of New York-centric books for sale on the web.

You don't need a PayPal account to pay by credit card.
Simply click on the credit card link and you'll pay by credit card through my PayPal service provider.

My "static" website is where you'll find all the history & genealogy.

I no longer have a "brick & mortar" site, my old bookstore is now my warehouse and not open to the public.
You can email me: or call  800-883-5778,
but you can't browse my shelves
for your patronage

Richard Frisbie, Proprietor


     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. Call 800-883-5778 to try and catch me in, but an email is more likely to reach me faster.
