Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Charles McIlvaine (1840-1909) was a veteran of the American Civil War who retired to become an author and mycologist. A Pennsylvania railroad man, McIlvaine joined Company H of the 97th Regiment Pennsylvania Volunteers on October 17, 1861, and rose to the rank of Captain before his resignation and retirement from military service on June 10, 1863. In 1880, he moved to West Virginia and began his post-military career as a minor author and amateur mycologist. Century Magazine, Harper's Magazine, and similar periodicals, as well as by the Detroit Free Press published a mix of sketches, poems and short stories, often written in an approximation of the rural West Virginia dialect. He also wrote at least two book-length works. He used the pseudonym Tobe Hodge for much of his writing.show more
