BEWARE of pirated editions! Please understand that profits from our books go directly to benefit members of the Stone family. Avoid free downloads, or print editions that are illegally claimed by publisher names such as Eigal Meirovich or BN Publishing. These editions are not authorized, and are sometimes smaller in size, incomplete or poorly printed. We are actively pursuing takedown notices and other legal actions against all unauthorized copies. Our thanks to the folks at DMCA Force in helping us with this.
Old photo of George Burt Stone—courtesy of Peter Emerick
Many thanks to Peter Emerick for bringing this great old photo to us. At far left is George Burt Stone (George Lawrence Stone's father) as a member of the Massachusetts Volunteer Militia (MVM on his snare drum badge—this also seems to be the First Regiment MVM Drum & Fife and Bugle Corps). What a great find!
