Booknotes - "Fire In The Cane Field: The Federal Invasion of Louisiana and Texas, January 1861-January 1863"

In January of last year, I reported on the plans from State House Press for a four book series (the "Louisiana Quadrille", as they say) by historian Donald S. Frazier detailing the history of the Civil War in the Louisiana region. After a year delay, the first volume is now out, and is titled Fire In The Cane Field: The Federal Invasion of Louisiana and Texas, January 1861 - January 1863 (State House Press, 2009). A review will be up soon.

Volume 2, Thunder Across the Swamp: The Fight for the Lower Mississippi, February - May 1863, is scheduled for 2010. It will include the first scholarly history of the Bayou Teche campaign as well as other operations along the Mississippi's west bank.
