New to the Civil War Memory Library, 06/29
Update: My first book, Remembering the Battle of the Crater: War as Murder was recently released in paperback. You can order it directly from the publisher with a 30% discount by using the code (FS30) at checkout. I am just about finished putting together the index for Interpreting the Civil War at Museums and Historic Sites, which will be released in September, if not before. You can also pre-order this book at 30% off directly from the publisher with the code (RLFANDF30).
Many of you will be happy to hear that Searching For Black Confederates: The Civil War’s Most Persistent Myth is almost finished. The manuscript will be submitted to the publisher by the end of September. Stay tuned for more information on this front.
