Booknotes VII (Oct '13)

New Arrivals:

1. Montana Territory and the Civil War: A Frontier Forged on the Battlefield by Ken Robison (The History Pr, 2013).

This book provides a brief history of the Civil War role of Montana Territory (with a presumed focus on the mining camps), but the largest part of the text is devoted to individual stories.

2. The Maltby Brothers' Civil War by Norman C. Delaney (TAMU Pr, 2013).

Beyond the Maltby family story, I am looking forward to seeing how much and how well Delaney exploits the opportunity to also inform readers about the bigger picture of the Civil War in South Texas.
