About the Author
Robert Angelone is a retired economist and publisher of Epicurus.com. He’s been an entrepreneur, inventor, angel investor, restaurant manager, political advisor, author and commercial writer for many decades. He was first to publish an all-digital consumer magazine, often saying, “The first to prove it couldn’t make any money.”
As a writer, he’s primarily written documentation for his clients ranging from auction systems needs assessments, and marketing prospectuses, to human resources policies. He’s written hundreds of articles on Epicurus.com, and other websites, as well as for newspapers in New York City.
Robert is a co-founder of Autism Citizen, a non-profit dedicated to teaching others about autism. The charity was organized because of his friend, Joe, who has been mistreated by so many, simply because he’s autistic. Robert felt those on the spectrum needed an advocacy group dedicated to protecting their equal rights.
Fascinated with history since he was a child, he determined to write this book and describe, not only historical facts but the times and circumstances surrounding them, giving his readers a true flavor for the way things were.
