Turns out that director Ron Maxwell took out a loan of $300,000 from Washington County, Maryland to complete the final chapter in the Shaara trilogy. Well, with the failure of the movie Gods and Generals it looks like those plans are in serious jeopardy and now the county wants its money back. I would also like the $8 dollars that I wasted on his film and the five hours of my life that I will never get back. In all seriousness, I do hope that the final installment never sees the silver screen.

"In this stunning and well-researched book, Kevin Levin catches the new waves of the study of memory, black soldiers, and the darker underside of the Civil War as well as anyone has... Levin is both superb scholar and public historian, showing us a piece of the real war that does now get into the books, as well as into site interpretation."
David Blight, Author of Race and Reunion
