"A Severe and Bloody Fight" reprint
The most recent Arkansas Historical Preservation Program battlefield update reminded me of a reprint that I've been meaning to mention. 1996's A Severe and Bloody Fight: The Battle of Whitney’s Lane & Military Occupation of White County, Arkansas, May & June, 1862 by Scott H. Akridge and Emmett E. Powers (White County Historical Society) is my favorite local Civil War military history book. Out of print for quite some time, the society reprinted it recently, and it can be obtained for the very reasonable price of $13 (incl. shipping) from their website.
