Booknotes III (May '09)

Acquisitions or review copies received this month:

1. The Flags of Civil War Missouri by Glenn Dedmondt (Pelican, 2009).
See my review of The Flags of Civil War Arkansas. This new book highlighting Missouri Confederate, militia, guerrilla, and State Guard emblems sports the same content style.

2. In the Cause of Liberty: How the Civil War Redefined American Ideals edited by William J. Cooper Jr. and John M. McCardell, Jr. (LSU Press, 2009).

3. Sacred Memories: The Civil War Monument Movement in Texas by Kelly McMichael (Texas State Hist. Assoc., 2009).
