Today I received advanced copies of two books to be published by the University of North Carolina Press in the next few weeks. The first book is The Shenandoah Valley Campaign of 1864 edited by Gary W. Gallagher and is scheduled for release on April 29. No doubt many of you are familiar with the Military Campaigns of the Civil War Series. This volume includes 11 essays and runs just over 400 pages which is significantly longer than the other books in the series. Unfortunately, the notice that comes with the book indicates that this is to be the “final book” in the series. The second title is The Civil War as a Theological Crisisby Mark A. Noll and has a release date of April 24. This book is part of a new series edited by William Blair. Happy reading.
