Booknotes VIII ( August '11 )

New Arrivals:

1. General Braxton Bragg, C.S.A. by Samuel J. Martin (McFarland, 2011).

2. A Soldier's Story of His Regiment (61st Georgia) and Incidentally of the Lawton- Gordon-Evans Brigade Army of Northern Virginia by George W. Nichols, ed. by Robert E.L. Krick (Univ of Ala Press, 2011).

The newest volume from the press's Seeing the Elephant, an Alabama series that reprints classic memoirs.

3. The Fifty-Eighth North Carolina Troops: Tar Heels in the Army of Tennessee by Michael C. Hardy (McFarland, 2011).

It's nice to see a NC unit history of a regiment that served in the AoT instead of the ANV. Looks like Michael did some fine work here.

4. From Bloody Shirt to Full Dinner Pail: The Transformation of Politics and Governance in the Gilded Age by Charles W. Calhoun (Hill and Wang, 2011).
