LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Mention in column is appreciated.

Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — Many thanks to columnist Betty Haag.

I knew she had been made aware of my e-book, “Discovering Pvt. Ira Allen, Survivor of the War of 1812.” Never did I expect my work to be mentioned in three of her columns, though. What a surprise.

July 11, 2013 was the 200th anniversary of his wounding. The knowledge of this fact and that he was a private; not an officer, were the motivation for the research and publication. Using the Internet has guaranteed his story would be ever “out there;” and there was no editor changing the facts. It was published as I wrote it.

Ms. Haag and readers, thank you so much.

E. E. Colangelo
