If you are from The Ward whether first generation r 5th as I am I believe you will find the First ward series to be well worth your time Other reviews complain that it is too much fact r not enough I went into it as historic fiction main history intact but with an interesting personal fictional side story Little did I know that I would be jumping into my wn family My great grand uncle Joseph Gavin is involved in the story Changes in how he is portrayed compared to family history lead me to read the entire "newspaper articles from the news f that time Political connections unknown to me "articles from the news f that time Political connections unknown to me the past became clearer leading me to re think my family s place in the Ward Yes there is a cliff hanger ending Being a the Ward Yes there is a cliff hanger ending Being a I didn t run Wilhelm Meisters Wanderjahre Von Goethe out for the next book whichf course I did do I went to work Not nly did I find ut what happens I made a family connection to the characters I then gave the books to my 93 year Victims In The War On Crime old father who could not put them down Stories were told relating to people places and the storiesf the Ward I recommend this series to anyone who enjoys a good story I enjoyed this novel which the author appropriately descried as a scrapbook f sorts Despite a few insignificant editing errors each chapter was well written and engaging As a whole the book suffered from the author s choice not to make choices Mr Sullivan simply included too much For example the chapters regarding Katie Hansen though interesting and well
composed were irrelevant 
were irrelevant the story Personally I was interested in the sections where the author got down into the weeds f historic incidents such as the insights surrounding the Fenian invasion 101 Great Thanksgiving Recipes of Canada However somef these detailed accounts did greater harm than good to the rhythm Captured French Tanks Under The German Flag of the novel Additionally I feel that Mr Sullivan had made a marketing error is playing up the rolef Mark Twain The segment Trauma Culture of the book that included Twain was gain well done and seems historically accurate but Twain does not prove critical to then going family drama Since this was a novel it may have helped to reintroduce Twain Eckhart Tolle or at least the Twain influence explicitly in the lifef Jim Sullivan As a fictionalized account The Correction Of An Essex Maid ofne family and the subculture Dead Ground of Buffalo s main Irish neighborhood The First Wards book succeeds As a novel it needs to be re edited Overall I liked the book and I recommend it to my friends with Buffalo Irish roots If your family is from the Old First Ward in Buffalo as my husband s is you have to read this book You may recognize somef the names and places Otherwise I think it s an interesting story Thomas Amp Friends Pocket Treasury of 19th century urban Irish life and politics Purports to be the factual storyf the author s Kambing Putih Bukan Kambing Hitam own ancestors A First Rate Historical Drama by a First Rate StorytellerIt is election year and while there are many candidates currently The Storyf One American Hero Mark Twain and Five Tales From The Dugout of The Greatest Villains You’ve Never Heard Of Fingy Conners · The Sheehan Brothers · Jack White · John P SullivanThis novel is basedn the true history and tumult The Rift Walker Vampire Empire 2 of boom town Buffalo’s First Ward from 1850 through New Year’s Eve 1899 and the real life characters who influenced and controlled the livesf half a million people Newlywed Sam Clemens aka Mark Twain was gifted with a spledid home with servants as well as a part wnership f the Buffalo Express newspaper by his generous father in law yet the Great American Storyteller would find neither happiness nor success in this unruly cityWhen First Ward dock walloper Fingy Conners’ family members all died mysteriously within a single year he inherited everything including his father’s saloon Using his saloon as the key he set ut to control labor contracting n Buffalo’s docks.
