Works underway

John C. Waugh, book and film projects


Unforgettables: Some Winners, Losers, Strong Women, and Eccentric Men of the Civil War Era

A random collection of stories, opinions, and profiles of figures and events that have particularly fascinated me as I have traveled back daily to the nineteenth century to revisit that monumental time and its extraordinary people. Don’t hold your breath just yet

The War of Two Brothers

A book of fiction for young adults of all ages being co-written by Jack and his writer-daughter Eliza Skye Waugh. It is underway, but don’t hold your breath here yet, either.


The Class of 1846

A film production company has been working for a year to produce and sell to a TV channel a series based on The Class of 1846. This is a slippery slope. Especially don’t hold your breath on this one.
