Coming Soon (September '21 Edition)

**NEW RELEASES1** Scheduled for SEPT 2021:

Crosshairs on the Capital: Jubal Early’s Raid on Washington, D.C., July 1864 - Reasons, Reactions, and Results by James Bruns.
Teacher, Preacher, Soldier, Spy: The Civil Wars of John R. Kelso by Christopher Grasso.
The Union League and Biracial Politics in Reconstruction Texas by Carl Moneyhon.
The River Batteries at Fort Donelson: Construction, Armament and Battles, 1861-1862 by Cathey & Robnett.

Suffering in the Army of Tennessee: A Social History of the Confederate Army of the Heartland from the Battles for Atlanta to the Retreat from Nashville by Christopher Thrasher.
Lincoln's Northern Nemesis: The War Opposition and Exile of Ohio's Clement Vallandigham by Martin Gottlieb.
Port Hudson: A History in Photographs by Lawrence Hewitt.
Ends of War: The Unfinished Fight of Lee's Army after Appomattox by Caroline Janney.
Civil War Witnesses and Their Books: New Perspectives on Iconic Works by Gallagher & Cushman, eds.
The Generals' Civil War: What Their Memoirs Can Teach Us Today by Stephen Cushman.
Robert E. Lee: A Life by Allen Guelzo.
Confederates and Comancheros: Skullduggery and Double-Dealing in the Texas–New Mexico Borderlands by Blackshear & Ely.

Comments: Janney's book arrived in the mail already, so it looks like it might get a slightly earlier general release. The biggest title of the month, at least in terms of sparking wide discussion and differing opinions, will surely be Guelzo's Lee biography. I hope I can get a review copy of it from Knopf.

1 - These monthly release lists are not meant to be exhaustive compilations of non-fiction releases. They do not include non-revised/expanded reprints of previously published books and digital-only titles. Works that only tangentially address the war years are also generally excluded. Inevitably, one or more titles on this list will get a rescheduled release (and they do not get repeated later), so revisiting the past few "Coming Soon" posts is the best way to pick up stragglers.
