I plan on sharing my favoite Civil War titles before the end of the year. [Fellow blogger and NPS historian John Hoptak has already published his "best of" list for 2008.] In the meantime I am interested to know what you found worthwhile from this year’s offerings. I don’t mind at all if you want to cite something published in 2007 that you only got around to reading this year.

"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."
