Merryman

In the previous review, I mentioned a pair of upcoming 2011 books dealing with the famous case of John Merryman. In case you were wondering, the titles are:

* The Body of John Merryman: Abraham Lincoln and the Suspension of Habeas Corpus by Brian McGinty (Harvard Univ Pr, October).

and

* Abraham Lincoln and Treason in the Civil War: The Trials of John Merryman by Jonathan W. White (LSU Pr, November).
