New to the Civil War Memory Library, 12/26

Hope all of you are enjoying the Holidays. Here are the final few books to make it into my library this past year. Do yourself a favor and read Whitehead’s The Underground Railroad if you haven’t done so already. It is a remarkable book and a recipient of a National Book Award.

Joseph Beilein, Bushwhackers: Guerrilla Warfare, Manhood, and the Household in Civil War Missouri (Kent State University Press, 2016).

Charles Dew, Apostles of Disunion: Southern Secession Commissioners and the Causes of the Civil War (15th Anniversary edition) (University Press of Virginia, 2015).

Karl Jacoby, The Strange Career of William Ellis: The Texas Slave Who Became a Mexican Millionaire (Norton, 2016).

Carl L. Paulus, The Slaveholding Crisis: Fear of Insurrection and the Coming of the Civil War (Louisiana State University Press, 2017).

Colson Whitehead, The Underground Railroad: A Novel (Doubleday, 2016).
