Mike Bunn and Clay Williams are historians who are seriously concerned about the place of history in our schools, our government, and our culture. We believe the critical role the study of history plays in a healthy society is underappreciated in our country today, and the profession is in dire need of advocates who can articulate its worth to a present-obsessed public.

Mike and Clay are co-authors of Battle for the Southern Frontier: The Creek War and the War of 1812 and frequent collaborators on a variety of public history projects.

Battle for the Southern Frontier

Mike and Clay are author of several other publications, including:



Mike Bunn is Director of Historic Blakeley State Park in Baldwin County, Alabama. In addition to being the location of the important Civil War Battle of Fort Blakeley, the 2100-acre park is the site of the ghost town of Blakeley, once a rival to nearby Mobile, and important Native American, colonial, territorial, and early Alabama statehood period sites.
