I Do Wish This Cruel War Was Over
The state historical society journals are a great resource for expertly edited Civil War letters and diaries, and Arkansas Historical Quarterly is an essential one for Trans-Mississippi students. Thus, I was rather excited to find that University of Arkansas Press was publishing I Do Wish This Cruel War Was Over: First-Person Accounts of Civil War Arkansas from the Arkansas Historical Quarterly early next year. Anything Mark Christ is involved with is worth our time and money and he is teaming up with Patrick Williams to edit this collection.
