Barry Sheehy Originally from Montreal Canada, Barry Sheehy holds degrees from Loyola and McGill Universities. Mr. Sheehy's lifelong passion for history has continued since his early years as an officer in the Canadian Armed Forces. He holds the Canadian Armed Forces Decoration. After leaving the military, he entered the entrepreneurial world of business consulting where he acquired clients from New York to London and as far away as Dubai and Hong Kong. Barry is the author or contributing author of several books and over fifty published papers and articles. Barry's ongoing interest in history eventually focussed his attention on America's most complete, surviving, antebellum, southern city - Savannah. He was particularly interested in the city's wartime experience. After many years of exhaustive research, Sheehy began the task of final development, aided by an all-volunteer team of skilled professionals in 2005. With rigorous cross-checking from both previously published works and newly discovered original materials, Sheehy has written the most extensive, historical study of Civil War Savannah ever undertaken. Now, just in time for the 150th Anniversary of the American Civil War, the first and second volumes of a four volume series Savannah, Immortal City followed by Brokers, Bankers and Bay Lane - go to press.
