The author's interest in the American Civil War veterans started in junior primary school days. After careers in heavy industry and politics he abandoned these disastrous choices and gained a double honours degree (English & Drama) with Modern History as a third, specialising in the rebellion against western imperialists in nineteenth century India and China. Other subsequent history studies at university included: The Conquest of Mexico, Nazi Germany, Migration, the Crusades, and the ancient civilizations of Egypt, Crete, Troy, Greece, Rome, and Medieval Europe. In 1995 by a fluke he became a tutor and defacto university lecturer/tutor, being the only person in the city qualified with the required highly specialized degree. He then worked in mainstream English for a term and then in university preparatory courses for indigenous students in English, Sociology, Education, Critical Literacy and Psychology. After government retrenchments to university in 1998, he returned to High School teaching. Between 2008 and early 2017, he organised and played community radio programs in the Folk and Celtic genres. Garry recently finished a second university degree, this time solely in History.
