There are outliers, but it looks like my prediction that it would be business as usual for publishers during the Sesquicentennial has largely held true.  Unfortunate, but not surprising.


  1. The Milliken's Bend title looks interesting, though the "history and memory" meme is getting a bit played out. And as I've mentioned before, I can't remember a book I've been as excited to see as Lee's Army during the Overland Campaign: A Numerical Study. That's either going to be a review copy (I've requested one) or it'll be purchased as soon as I know I've been denied.

    1. Hi Brett,
      I am definitely on board for reviewing the Overland Campaign, KGC, and Milliken's Bend studies. Hopefully, LSU will make it easy.

  2. Hi Drew

    Looking forward to a few of the forthcoming university press titles. Particularly Earl Hess's Kennessaw Mountain, Confederate Generals essay title from Univ. Tenn. and I think there will be a new essay book from SIU press. However, with the sequicentennial, I thought there would be more being published. It is good to see Savas Beatie continuing to publish good Civil War history.

  3. And what has become on my part almost an annual inquiry to whoever might know - Any 2013 word from Gordon Rhea about the final book in his Overland series?

  4. Hello Drew

    Like Phil I'm anxiously awaiting the 5th volume of Gordon Rhea's Overland Campaign. Its hard to believe it has been a decade since volume 4 was published. Perhaps LSU is waiting till 2014 and the 150th anniversary? I hope the publication isn't just a rumor.
