The majority of the Fall/Winter catalogs from the university presses are available now, and I just wanted to mention a trio of selections. Larry Daniel's new battle history will be published in November by LSUP and is titled Battle of Stones River: The Forgotten Conflict between the Confederate Army of Tennessee and the Union Army of the Cumberland. Forgotten, eh?
The William C. Davis blurb to Henry Laver's A General Who Will Fight: The Leadership of Ulysses S. Grant (Kentucky, Nov) asserts that it "could become the book on Grant's generalship". I don't think anyone would rate Davis, or fellow blurber James Ramage, as Grant experts, and books like this are common and rarely offer fresh ideas, but I am intrigued nonetheless.
Finally, there's Rick Sauers and Peter Tomasak's The Fishing Creek Confederacy: A Story of Civil War Draft Resistance (Missouri, Sept). Excepting the NYC draft riots, the study of armed resistance to conscription in the North lags far behind that of the Confederacy. I was first exposed to the unrest in Columbia County, Pennsylvania, and the military expedition launched to suppress it, with Robert Sandow's excellent Deserter Country: Civil War Opposition in the Pennsylvania Appalachians (Fordham, 2009), a brief work covering resistance in the ten county "lumber region" of north-central Pennsylvania, but The Fishing Creek Confederacy is the first book length study of the Columbia County situation.
