Badgers in the Swamps
Regular readers know I will rarely resist a new book about the Civil War in Missouri (at least the non-bushwhacker stuff). Recently, I learned from the trusty History-Sites messageboard for Missouri about Paul Arnold's plan to publish his thesis Badgers in the Swamps: The 1st Wisconsin Cavalry in Southeast Missouri, 1862-1863 later on this year. Beyond a few journal articles, there's not much in the way of good material published about the war in this region during this time period. I'm looking forward to it.
