Book News

A list of additional 2010 Civil War-related books forthcoming from The History Press has been provided me. The titles are coming fast and furious and several of the following look quite interesting. Fellow Missouri enthusiasts will, in addition to the current Newtonia book mentioned earlier (here), undoubtedly appreciate the Pilot Knob and Lone Jack volumes, the latter of which has never before enjoyed book length treatment.

Andersonville Civil War Prison
Baltimore in the Civil War
Oxford [MS] in the Civil War
The Battle of Lone Jack, Missouri
Fort Davidson and the Battle of Pilot Knob: Missouri's Alamo
Germantown [PA] in the Civil War
Facing Sherman in South Carolina
Williamstown [VT] in the Civil War
Stonewall Jackson’s 1862 Shenandoah Campaign

Also, author and translator Joe Reinhart notified me that his book A German Hurrah!: Civil War Letters of Friedrich Bertsch and Wilhelm Stangel, 9th Ohio Infantry will indeed be released by The Kent State Univ. Press at the end of the month. I am especially looking forward to the material pertaining to the 1861 campaign in western Virginia.

According to his facebook page, Eric Lindblade's Fight As Long As Possible: The Battle of Newport Barracks, North Carolina, February 2, 1864 will be available from his publisher, Ten Roads, on June 21.
