Dead Confederates, A Civil War Era Blog

New on the Shelf

Posted in Memory by Andy Hall on January 23, 2014

OldManDropped by the bookstore this morning and picked up a few titles that looked interesting:

  • Lincoln’s Avengers: Justice, Revenge and Reunion After the Civil War, by Elizabeth D. Leonard
  • Now for the Contest: Coastal & Oceanic Naval Operations in the Civil War, by William H. Roberts
  • The Making of Robert E. Lee, by Michael Fellman
  • Dixie Betrayed: How the South Really Lost the Civil War, by David J. Eicher
  • The Old Man: John Brown at Harper’s Ferry by Truman Nelson


Most of these will probably take a while to get to, so if y’all have any suggestions about what to look for — or look out for — in them, let me know.

    Leonard’s book is very good.

    :Dixie Betrayed” seems to be attracting some nasty feedback for attacking Jeff Davis. But then more recent feedback seems more balanced.
