I just found out that Alan Nolan died yesterday. As far as I can tell there is nothing in the news so if I come across any additional information I will make sure to pass it on. Nolan was the author of numerous Civil War studies, most notably, Lee Considered: Robert E. Lee and Civil War History and the Iron Brigade: A Military History.
Please feel free to share your memories of this controversial historian. I am interested in hearing from those of you who knew him personally or have spent time reading his books and articles.
