Gottschalk reprint

Copies of Phil Gottschalk's award-winning unit study In Deadly Earnest: The History of the First Missouri Brigade pop up only occasionally on the secondary market, usually commanding prices in the high double digits. I am pleasantly surprised to find that it is now back in print, having recently run across an advertisement for the new Missouri’s Civil War Heritage Edition of the book. The product description on the website is unclear in the way of details (binding, etc.).[add.: a reader contacted the publisher and confirmed to me that it's a hardback. thanks, Jim!].

  2. Drew,

    Good news indeed. I lived in Columbia, MO, for several years and had the great privilege of getting a signed copy of In Deadly Eranest from Phil back in the mid 90s at a local living history event.

  3. That will definitely be a collectible, regardless of the new edition.
