I hope that all of you are safe and doing well during this very difficult period. Here are some new books that have come my way that you might find enjoyable. All of my talks for March, April, and May have been cancelled, which means that I have plenty of copies of Searching for Black Confederates for purchase if you would like one personalized. I will also include a free copy of the latest issue of The Civil War Monitor magazine while supplies last. Contact Me for the details.
All of the links are to Indiebound. Please order through your local independent bookseller if at all possible. They desperately need our support. Thank you.
