ABOUT THE AUTHOR Dr. Lawrence Krumenaker is a history and science book writer, following a career as an astronomer and as a science and education teacher. He has a special interest in "landscape archeology," that can be seen in the landscape of historical events. Originally a Revolutionary War buff in New Jersey, when he moved to Kennesaw, GA, he found his home was likely part of a campsite by Confederate Cavalry. Finding historical markers nearby for a battle he had never learned about in school, he began his quest to find out how the Union was kept out of downtown Atlanta. Krumenaker currently alternates between Atlanta and Germany as residence. His next books will be "The Colonia Tour Book," a walking tour guide to the Roman city that became Cologne (December), and "Federation Space," a guide to the real stars in our skies found in the Star Trek universe and our real one, and what they can teach us about astronomy and the United Federation of Planets (April).
