Booknotes II (February '10 )

New additions this month:

1. Brush Men and Vigilantes: Civil War Dissent in Texas by David Pickering and Judy Falls (Texas A&M Univ. Press, 2004).

An important volume in understanding southern unionism in the Lone Star State and the Confederate response to it. Brush Men centers on the NE counties.

2. Tyler Texas C. S. A.: The Story of the Confederate States Ordnance Works at Tyler Texas 1861-1865 by William A. Albaugh III (Broadfoot, 1993).

The Broadfoot reissue is a reprint of the 1958 Stackpole edition. Going on 60+ years from first publication, this remains the only significant book length study of a Confederate arms production facility located in the Trans-Mississippi theater (I think).

3. Images of the Civil War in West Virginia by Terry Lowry and Stan Cohen (Quarrier Press, 2000).

This is a great compilation of photographs, maps, and drawings from two long time veterans of West Virginia Civil War publishing.
