Booknotes II (October '09)

New additions this month:

1. Lincoln’s Proclamation: Emancipation Reconsidered - edited by William A. Blair & Karen Fisher Younger (Univ. of N. Carolina Press, 2009).

This is a collection of eight essays dealing with various aspects (controversial and otherwise) of the Emancipation Proclamation.

2. The Battle of Athens: "Farthest North of the Civil War" - by Ben F. Dixon (Author, 1991).

Before the 2007 publication of Jonathan K. Cooper-Wiele's excellent Skim Milk Yankees Fighting, Ben Dixon's difficult to find compilation was the closest readers could get to a book length study of the Athens battle. It's still worth owning.
