Volume I was stocked in the Stones River National Battlefield bookstore and it is expected, but not confirmed at this time, that Volume II will also be made available there. These books are a must have for serious students of the battle.


  1. I was at Stones River National Battlefield, last weekend, and it wasn't there yet. Since it's right across town I will look for it again next weekend. Volume 1 is amazing, and I can't wait to see volume 2. Incidently they still have about 4 copies of volume one for sale there.

  2. That's a bit surprising. I think the pair will be a sought after item for collectors in the future.

  3. I just got mine in the mail today; massive, impressive, just like the first volume. And Mr. Smith is always pleasant when responding to emails.
