New Hafendorfer book and other things

Kenneth Hafendorfer's latest book, Battle of Richmond, Kentucky, is now available. The only contact information I have is:

KH Press
915 Cromwell Hill Rd
Louisville, KY 40222

KH Press has no website or email as far as I know (you'd think he would these days). An email correspondent mentioned the price as $33 plus $2 shipping direct from the publisher, but I can't confirm that. I don't believe any of the major online booksellers like Amazon, B&N, etc. carry them, but Morningside Books and C. Clayton Thompson carry Hafendorfer's books new so that's an alternative source for purchase information.


The answer to Dimitri's post today on Civil War Bookshelf is YES--a resounding yes! Pemberton has every opportunity to win Campaign Vicksburg in the field.


I picked up the used copy of Iowa's Forgotten General by Kenneth Lyftogt that I mentioned earlier on CWBA. I'll have a review of it up soon.


  1. Regarding Pemberton's chances, they were not too bad, considering that when Grant crossed the river below Vicksburg, there were still more Confederates in Mississippi than there were Federals. Opportunities abounded.

    I'm going to go back to the original entry to ask some questions about the Vicksburg game.


  2. Yes, there certainly were opportunities. Grindstone Ford after Port Gibson and the opportunity to strike a vulnerable XIII Corp at 14 Mile Creek come to mind.
