Greetings all – I am very pleased to announce that the latest edition of the Military Campaigns of the Civil War Series, Cold Harbor to the Crater: The End of the Overland Campaign, is available for preorder – due for release from UNC Press in September, 2015. I am exceedingly honored to have an essay in this volume, edited by Gary W. Gallagher and Caroline E. Janney. My focus is on Confederate soldiers and their prospects for victory in mid 1864. You might be surprised by what I have to say.
But what’s really great is that I am in exceptional company. Other contributors include: Keith S. Bohannon, Stephen Cushman, Robert E. L. Krick, Kevin M. Levin, Kathryn Shively Meier, Gordon C. Rhea, and Joan Waugh.
How’s that for a group of heavy hitters?
