New to the Civil War Memory Library

Note: Received a box of copies of Searching for Black Confederates if you are interested in a signed/personalized book. As I recently mentioned, sales of the hardcover are still strong. A paperback version will likely not be published before early 2022.

    The Oakes book is tremendous.

      I am enjoying it as well, though it hasn’t really gone beyond what Sean Wilentz does in his book, Property in Man. Just now getting into the war years.
