Mountaineers Are Always Free
Many excellent books detail various West(ern) Virginia Civil War themes and events, but disappointingly few have emerged over the past decade or so. However, I did discover notice of an upcoming work by Mark Snell titled West Virginia and the Civil War: Mountaineers Are Always Free. It will apparently be published by The History Press at the end of August although their website does not list it yet and some searches note a transposition of title and subtitle from what I have here. I also learned that "Mountaineers Are Always Free" [Montani Semper Liberi] is the WV state motto.
