Booknotes III ( July '11 )

New Arrivals:

1. Savannah, Immortal City: Volume I - Civil War Savannah by Barry Sheehy & Cindy Wallace with Vaughnette Goode-Walker (Emerald Book Co., 2011).

A heavy oversize volume (first of a four volume set) bound in red cloth and full of maps, photos, and other illustrations, this glossy text and visual history of Savannah during the war is full of architecture lore interspersed with annotated historical narrative.

2. Violent Encounters: Interviews on Western Massacres by Deborah and John Lawrence (U of Okla Pr, 2011).

Prominent western massacres are examined in a Q&A format with recognized experts. The two most Civil War-related cover Sand Creek and the Santee Sioux uprising. I like it a great deal so far.
