Digital ed. of leading Little Rock Campaign history

It's not perfect by any means, but Timothy and Stephanie Burford's The Division: Defending Little Rock August 25 - September 10 1863 is still the best military account (in text and maps) of the Union campaign that captured the Arkansas capital. It's been out of print for quite a while, but those that would like to own a copy can now obtain an inexpensive digital edition.

    What you say about that book is definitely true. It is an invaluable resource to understand the campaign, especially the early fighting. Unfortunately, it is a little known study.
