Booknotes (May '10)

New additions:

1. Louisianians in the Western Confederacy: The Adams-Gibson Brigade in the Civil War by Stuart Salling  (McFarland, 2010).

You can always get on my good side with great cartography, and the 43 maps that accompany this book are really quite good.

2. Texas: A Historical Atlas by A. Ray Stephens, maps by Carol Zuber-Mallison  (U. of Oklahoma Press, 2010).

Stephens published the Historical Atlas of Texas twenty years ago, and this is an updated and greatly expanded new edition, with all new color maps (175 of them). It's beautiful work, but Civil War coverage is sparse, with only four pages and two maps.
