History Lives Here: A Kepi in the Tide - Writing Historical Fiction

Author and genealogist John Ickes is a distant relative of early San Juan Island artist Marjorie Walker (1906-1992). His historical research contributed to the understanding of Marjorie’s life and the online publication of her story https://www.historylink.org/File/20934. John has done extensive genealogical research on his family; research that uncovered the heroic and tragic story of his great uncle Hobart M. Walker (1842-1865), who fought and died for the Union Army during the Civil War. John will discuss Hobart’s story and the process he used to research and write the historically-based fictionalized story of Hobart’s life A Kepi in the Tide.
