  1. Matchless Organization. Tried to find it at Barnes and Noble or Books A Million, but seems it’s only available through Amazon.

  2. The Myth of the Lost Cause, Gallagher
    Petersburg to Appomattox, Janney
    Gettysburg – – The Second Day, Pfanz
    Albert Sidney Johnson, Roland & Gallagher
    Summer of 63, Mackowski & Welch

  3. The Maps of Spotsylvania and Cold Harbor, Gottfried (available early 2023…)
    The Battle of the Wilderness in Myth and Memory, Petty

  4. Listening to a bunch of interviews lately, my list is growing.
    “Claiming Union Widowhood: Race, Respectability, and Poverty in the Post-Emancipation South” By Brandi Clay Brimmer
    “Maladies of an Empire” AND “Sick From Suffering” by Jim Downs
    “At the Threshold of Liberty: Women, Slavery, and Shifting Identities in Washington, D.C.” By Tamika Y. Nunley
    “Black Antietam: African Americans and the Civil War in Sharpsburg” by Emilie Amt
    “Spectacle of Grief: Public Funerals and Memory in the Civil War Era” by Sarah Purcell
    Just to name a few…

  5. “Let Us Die Like Men: The Battle of Franklin”
    “A Season of Slaughter: The Battle of Spotsylvania Court House”
    “Lee is Trapped and Must be Taken: Eleven Fateful Days After Gettysburg”

  6. I, unknowingly, but happily, received two books from my daughter: Civil War Letters, Ed. By Bob Blaisdell and Smithsonian’s The Civil War, A Visual History. Now that things have died down somewhat from the holidays ( even though my birthday is New Year’s Eve!) I’ll have some time to do some great reading! Can’t wait. Thanks, Santa!
