More CW in the Southwest this year


Looks like this year will see some more interesting titles dealing with the Civil War in the desert southwest. The Civil War in Arizona: The Story of the California Volunteers, 1861-1865 (June 2006) and Distant Bugles, Distant Drums: The Union Response to the Confederate Invasion of New Mexico (May 2006).

I am not familiar with the work of either author, but both books above join the upcoming Grant at Cairo book as Big 12 university press publications (Tigers, Sooners, and Buffaloes) so they can't be all bad.

  1. These two look interesting. I can't remember ever seeing a Civil War book out of the University Press of Colorado.

  2. David,
    In the middle 90s, they put out a revised edition of Monnett's "Action Before Westport". That's the only thing I remember them publishing that was CW related.
