Trans-Mississippi Magazine Articles

Recently, I received the latest issue (Volume 12, number 6) of North & South magazine and noticed that (happily!) there are two articles relating to the trans-Mississippi in it. “Interdicting The Mississippi: Colonel Colton Greene, CSA vs. The U. S. Navy” is written by noted naval authority Myron J. Smith, and it details a short and “largely unremembered…campaign from Chicot County, the southeastern-most county in Arkansas. Greene would blockade the great river for over a week and leave several tinclad captains reeling” (p. 33).

Mark K. Christ, an expert on the war in Arkansas, has penned “’The Federals Fought Like Devils’” about the battle of Pine Bluff on 25 October 1863.

Although there does not appear to be a working website for North & South, the magazine is usually easy to find on the newsstands of chain bookstores.
