In the Second Month that corresponds to 1863 on the old Japanese calendar, eight crack swordsmen of Kondo Isami’s dojo, the Shieikan, joined a corps formed by the Bakufu in Edo to subdue its enemies in Kyoto. Later that year the eight Shieikan men, with some others, would form the Shinsengumi in Kyoto for the same purpose. Only one of them would survive the revolution.
I’m moving forward slowly and carefully on the new book. Thank you for your support and interest.
