Mr. Schmutz enjoyed a rewarding career as a corporate attorney, including serving as a member of the executive management committees of several large, public corporations. He has enjoyed a lifelong fascination with all aspects of the Civil War, and one of his objectives in life was ultimately to find the time to perform the required research and write on that subject. By reducing his workload, he has found the time and flexibility to research and write extensively. The result to date has been two books, of which he is extremely proud. A third work is in process. In addition to immersing himself in the Civil War, Schmutz also pursues genealogical research, remains an avid golfer and general sports fan, in addition to possessing a fascination for international travel, which he indulges in on a frequent basis. He also is involved in advising charitable organizations. A native of Oneida, New York, he now lives in San Antonio, Texas with his wife, Marie. Together they have three grown children living in various parts of the country.
