Intriguing upcoming title...maybe

In October (yeah, a long ways off), University of Alabama press is publishing a book by Buckley Foster called "Sherman's Mississippi Campaign". Unfortunately, the press's website keeps giving me an error message when I search for it so I can't find any details at the moment. I wonder if it covers the 1864 Meridian Campaign or the 1862 Chickasaw Bayou fiasco...or maybe something else.

  1. It covers the 1864 Meridian Campaign and is fairly detailed.

  2. Art,

    That's excellent news. This book combined with Gary Joiner's new Red River book should make for some very interesting reading, none of it involving Gettysburg!

  4. Art,
    Thanks. I've read Margie Bearss's book a couple times, but another Meridian Campaign book isn't unwelcome.

    Brett,
    That's interesting that they put pre-publication info up on their website. I wasn't aware of it. Thanks.
