The start of classes at my university last Monday and my work on my manuscript has eaten into the time that I spend on my blog. I vowed to post today even if it was just a bit of miscellany.
Today, I received a complimentary copy of the March-April issue of Strategy & Tactics in my work mailbox. Much to my surprise the cover story is “Warpath: Indian Territory In the American Civil War.” How odd that the one complimentary copy that I’ve ever received of the magazine features the trans-Mississippi. Readers can purchase the “Warpath” game for $35.
Next month, State House Press will publish Blood on the Bayou: Vicksburg, Port Hudson, and the Trans-Mississippi. The book is the third part of the “Louisiana Quadrille”; the previous two volumes have been highlighted by interviews with Dr. Frazier on this blog.
In June, Savas Beatie will be publishing John Schmutz’s history of one of the most renowned regiments of trans-Mississippians: the 5th Texas Infantry. My reading year is shaping up nicely!
