New UT Press Civil War series

The latest issue of North and South [10:4, pg. 41] contained an announcement for a new Civil War series to be edited by Gary D. Joiner. The Western Theater in the Civil War series "is to publish cutting-edge scholarship on the Civil War and Reconstruction" and "may include monographs or edited volumes," joining Tennessee's already impressive Voices of the Civil War catalog of books. I certainly appreciate the enlarging commitment of UT Press to Civil War publishing, especially with the western focus.

I hope everyone had/is having a great Christmas holiday, surrounded by family and too much food [or the other way around]!


  1. Drew, Larry Hewitt and I will probably have some volumes in Gary Joiner's new series. We have proposed at least two books of essays on Confederate Generals of the Western Theater and two on Confederate Generals of the Trans-Mississippi Theater.

  2. Drew,

    News of the "Western Theater" series is pretty exciting -- all the more so since Tennessee is taking it on. Their "Voices" series is a thing of beauty.


  3. Those sound great, Art. Thanks for stopping by, and please keep me updated! This reminds me I need to get to your latest book, the edited Ark. unionist memoir. It's been sitting on the shelf for a while.
