Louis Diggs Publication of Book #10 on African American Life in Baltimore County‏

From Louis Diggs - I would like you to know that I have 
just published my 10th book titled: 
“African Americans From Baltimore County Who Served 
in the Civil War: 
Maryland’s Six Regiments of Slaves.”  
Many of you know that Baltimore County never had any documented 
history of African American life and communities in the County, 
and the previous books I have researched and published is helping 
to fill that void.  
This 10th book takes the history of African American life to a 
higher level of understanding, 
with the huge amount of information in this book about the 
sacrifices made by more than 400 slaves 
and freed slaves toward preserving the history of their country.

A synopsis of the main points of my 10th book
If you are interested in purchasing a copy of the book, 
I will give all a discount.  
Cost of the book is $39.95 plus 6% MD State taxes, 
and mailing cost.  Your cost will be $35.00 plus the 6% tax 
that I cannot avoid collecting, and I will pay the mailing 
cost which will be about $6.00.
If you would like additional information about the book, 
just send me an email
