A pair of new releases from Camp Pope Publishing: 35th Iowa regimental and Antietam cavalry study

Camp Pope Publishing announced today the release of a two new studies (click on the cover art for more information):

Triumph & Tragedy"The 35th Iowa had a unusually active combat record. Beginning with the Siege of Vicksburg, the regiment fought at Jackson, Pleasant Hill, Yellow Bayou, Old River Lake, Tupelo, Nashville, and Spanish Fort. Forty-nine offices and men were killed or mortally wounded in combat, including their beloved commander Sylvester Hill, and another 188 died of disease.
Based on primary material and contemporary sources, Triumph & Tragedy is a 6 x 9 quality paperback, 154 pages, and features 29 maps, photographs, and illustrations, a full roster, and index. (Published 2012, ISBN: 978-1-929919-41-3). $12.00."

Boots and Saddles"Ready now for the 150th anniversary of the battle, this massive study, the product of years of research and topographical analysis, will surely be the definitive scholarly resource on this aspect of the Civil War for years to come. ... Painstakingly researched in primary and secondary sources and thoroughly documented and annotated, Boots and Saddles: Cavalry During the Maryland Campaign of September 1862 is a 594-page, 8½ x 11" hardcover, with over 200 maps, photographs, and illustrations. Included is a driving tour written by Craig Swain, with modern maps and GPS coordinates. (Published 2012, ISBN: 978-1-929919-42-0). $39.50."


  1. That Antietam book sounds interesting.

  2. I am intrigued by the fact that somebody could turn out 594 pages on cavalry operations in the Antietam Campaign - especially from the Union side. Maybe Lincoln's post-battle comment to Little Mac about his horses was unduly harsh (Antietam pun intended).

    1. It must go pretty micro. I'll find out soon as I have a copy on the way.
