Marshall Conyers is a devoted enthusiast of all things related to the War Between the States and is a
veritable jack-of-all-trades. He has worked in education, carpentry, public
health, and surveying, and he has served in the United States military. His
military experience leads him to speak with deep admiration for Civil War-era
Conyers' first book, How Many Feathers Does It Take to Make an Eagle Fly?, was heard through the Iron Curtain in
the spring of 1988, when it was read aloud on a Voice of America radio broadcast
in the Soviet Union. The children's story about how a blind boy finds freedom
through reading was also locally acclaimed in his native North Carolina.
Born on Christmas Day 1946
in Wilson County, North Carolina, Conyers earned a bachelor's degree in history
with a minor in political science from Atlantic Christian College, now known as
Barton College. He taught high-school history and science before enlisting in
the North Carolina National Guard.
Conyers lives in Wilson, North Carolina, where he is a member of First Christian Church and a former
member of the Wilson County Republican Party. He enjoys bicycling, collecting
local artifacts, and taking long walks with his two dogs, Pal and Spot.
