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.
