    Any thoughts Kevin (or anyone else) on any of these, pro or con?

    Very interested to read Massacre in Memphis, given the large Irish contingent among both the Memphis police and rioters. One to add to the wish list!

      You may also want to check out a couple recent articles by Andy Slap, who is also writing about Memphis during the immediate postwar period. I am pretty sure he also has a book in the works.
