The Battle of Baton Rouge Second Edition
Self-published in 2006, Thomas Richey's The Battle of Baton Rouge added depth to Ed Bearss's forty year old Louisiana History article detailing in minute fashion the tactical aspects of the fight. In the meantime, the author has uncovered enough new manuscript material to justify putting together an updated work, released last month as The Battle of Baton Rouge, Second Edition. I haven't seen the new one yet, but the first edition was well worth the time of any student of the battle.
