Org history of the U.S. Regulars in the Civil War
I am looking forward to receiving my copy of Clayton Newell and Charles Shrader's Of Duty Well and Faithfully Done: A History of the Regular Army in the Civil War (Univ. of Nebraska Pr, 2011). It looks like a great book, and I'm glad they went heavy on the organizational focus with a chart and table heavy reference/encyclopedic style of presentation. You can get a good sense of it with Amazon's "Inside the Book" feature. This new big book also reminds me that I never did get around to reading another large tome dealing with the Regulars, Mark Johnson's That Body of Brave Men: The U.S. Regular Infantry and The Civil War In The West (Da Capo, 2003).
