I had no idea that reviewing my own page proofs would be this nerve-wracking. Knowing that this is my final chance to make minor changes before it goes to print has me second guessing myself on every page. That said, it is nice to see the manuscript in its final form. Everything came out looking awesome. The narrative itself comes to 150 pages, which makes it a very manageable read. I have until April 20 to finish both the final proofreading as well as the index. We are still shooting for a mid-June release.

"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."
