10th Missouri CSA journal published

The Arkansas History Commission has just published Traveled through a Fine Country: The Journal of Captain Henry Brockman Company K, 10th Missouri Volunteer Infantry, C.S.A..

Description:
"Captain Henry Brockman served in Company K, 10TH Missouri Volunteer Infantry, Confederate Army during the Civil War. In his journal, he describes in detail his daily activities, the many places he visited, and the things he saw during his time in the military. As Brockman "traveled through fine country," his tour of duty took him to major battles in Arkansas and Louisiana, including stops at Jacksonport, Pocahontas, Yellville, Des Arc, Helena, Little Rock, Benton, Arkadelphia, Warren, Camden, and Shreveport. For over 100 years, the Arkansas History Commission has preserved Brockman's writings. The captain's journal has been meticulously transcribed, and is now published and available in book format".

It's too bad there's have no purchasing alternative to the outdated method of printing out a form and mailing a check ($17).

Thanks to Jim McGhee for the heads up.
