Booknotes IV (December '11)

New Arrivals:

1. Demon of the Lost Cause: Sherman and Civil War History by Wesley Moody (Univ of Missouri Pr, 2011).

Moody explores how and why Sherman's reputation, north and south, has shifted over time and in what ways Sherman himself actively sought to shape how he would be remembered.

2. Trembling in the Balance: The Chesapeake and Ohio Canal During the Civil War by Timothy R. Snyder (Blue Mustang Press, 2011).

Like the B&O Railroad, the C&O Canal had experiences of its own as a military target. Synder's book deals with the business struggle, as well.
