This is more like it

Some others aren't feeling it, but Tennessee is getting into the Sesquicentennial spirit with their spring catalog.

New titles:
* A Documentary History of the American Civil War Era: Volume 2, Political Arguments
* Confederate Combat Commander: The Remarkable Life of Brigadier General Alfred Jefferson Vaughan Jr.
* Confederate Generals in the Trans-Mississippi, Vol. 1
* Rethinking Shiloh: Myth and Memory
* We Are in His Hands Whether We Live or Die: The Letters of Brevet Brigadier General Charles Henry Howard

PB reprints:
* Lee’s Last Casualty: The Life and Letters of Sgt. Robert W. Parker, Second Virginia Cavalry
* Valleys of the Shadow: The Memoir of Confederate Captain Reuben G. Clark
* Andrew Johnson’s Civil War and Reconstruction

It's great to see another volume from UTP's Confederate generals essay series, especially one for the Trans-Mississippi.


  1. Mr Drew,
    First of all, let me tell you that this blog is just amazing. The more I read you, the more I spend $. I think I'm addict.
    So, it's not my habit to post comment but I'm just to exited with the news of a new book by T. Smith. Any details about Rethinking Shiloh? I read on your blog that he's working on a Shiloh book with UPK, so I guess his Rethinking Shiloh is not like his Corinth book and that we'll have to wait ?


    1. Thank you. I'm glad you like it, and the authors and publishers are undoubtedly pleased at your addiction to collecting their books!

      About Smith's "Rethinking Shiloh" book, at this time all I know about it is the title and around when it will be released (March). We'll at least have a description when the full catalog is available for download.

      I haven't read any more news about how far his Shiloh book that will be published by Kansas has progressed. We do know it's not in the SS '13 catalog.

    2. Last I heard, I think Tim is still a good distance away from a date for completing a manuscript. My understanding is that he intends to gave the second day something approaching equal billing.

    3. That would be worth the wait.
