Local Author Gene Paleno at Lakeport Library
LAKEPORT – On Dec. 7 local author Gene Paleno will present a program about his book “The Porter Conspiracy” at Lakeport Library, 1425 N. High Street. The free program will run from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Paleno’s book covers a little-known aspect of the Civil War, the court martial of Union Major General FitzJohn Porter which resulted from his actions at the Second Battle of Bull Run, also called Second Manassas. Porter was blamed for the Union’s defeat but was exonerated years later. Paleno’s book, a novel based on the life of FitzJohn Porter, has recently been published as an e-book and is available through Amazon.
