Former ‘Monitor’ editor Mike Pride reads, signs new book, ‘Our War’

‘Our War’ author Pride reads, signs at Gibson’s

C oncord Monitor editor emeritus Mike Pride will share his new history of Concord in the Civil War, Our War: Days and Events in the Fight for our Union, with a reading and book signing at 7 tonight at Gibson’s Bookstore in Concord.

In Our War, Pride uses letters, diaries and contemporary newspaper accounts to shape 50 stories of death, love, bravery and survival.

One story leads to another, and the war unfolds as New Hampshire men and women lived it from the heady days of 1861 to the costly victory of 1865.

Pride has co-authored several books, including My Brave Boys, a history of Colonel Edward E. Cross and the Fifth New Hampshire Volunteers. He graduated from the University of South Florida and was a Nieman Fellow at Harvard University. He lives in Concord with his wife, Monique.
