I assume that a struggling economy is going make life difficult for a number of small publishers, not to mention the major publishing houses. Cumberland House looks like it is the first to succumb. Sourcebooks Inc., an independent publisher based in Naperville, Ill., assumed rights to the titles and an additional nine books that haven’t been released, plus the Cumberland House name and Web site under the deal that closed this week. That’s good news for those of you still looking to collect all of their titles in the “May I Quote You…” series.

"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
