Booknotes (July '12)

New Arrivals:

1. The 10th Minnesota Volunteers, 1862-1865: A History of Action in the Sioux Uprising and the Civil War, with a Regimental Roster by Michael A. Eggleston (McFarland, 2012).

The narrative runs a bit over 100 pages, with most of it devoted to action against the Sioux in Minnesota and further out west on the plains of the Dakotas. In 1864, the 10th fought at Tupelo, Mississippi, aided in repelling the Price Expedition in Missouri, and clashed with Hood at Nashville. A roster, casualty list, and a number of appendices round out the volume.

2. A Civil War Campaign Through Missouri compiled by Dennis Hood, translated by Stephen Trobisch, and edited by Cynthia Johnson (Leonard Press, 2012).
