Ramsey's 1st Georgia book and blog

A history of the active but short-lived 1st Georgia (Ramsey's) Volunteer Infantry Regiment is scheduled for publication by Mercer U. Press this winter, titled I Will Give Them One More Shot: Ramsey’s First Regiment Georgia Volunteers. The author, George W. Martin, has also just started a blog called One More Shot. Formed in March 1861, the men of the 1st served on the Gulf coast and in the mountains of western Virginia (two fronts of special interest to me) before being mustered out upon conclusion of their one year enlistment term in March 1862. I'm looking forward to reading it.
