Booknotes (Aug 08)

August list of book acquisitions:
Having read Livingston's Among the Best Men the South Could Boast, The Fall of Fort McAllister, December 13, 1864 (see brief review) and Christman's Undaunted: The History of Fort McAllister, Georgia, and found them unsatisfying for one reason or another (esp. the former, but the latter is a fairly good military overview), I've been awaiting with interest this new study.
The literature of the Civil War in the southwest tends to dry up after the end of the Sibley expedition. This book, under Thompson's knowledgeable oversight, should prove to be informative and one for the Trans-Miss. reference library.

    Drew, I look forward to your review of Roger Durham's book since he is a colleague at USAMHI.
