New edition of "Mr. Lincoln's Forts"
Considering what they currently go for on the secondary market, I am sure most interested readers would be happy to learn that B.F. Cooling's excellent Mr. Lincoln's Forts: A Guide to the Civil War Defenses of Washington (White Mane, 1988) is going to be reissued in a new edition by The Scarecrow Press. Enthusiasm for leaping over the $75 price hurdle -- and for a paperback to boot -- is another matter. I've seen a November release date online, but the publisher site has it listed for April 2009.
