New Books!

A great day is when new books arrive in the mail. Today, I received I Do Wish This Cruel War Was Over: First Person Accounts of Civil War Arkansas from the Arkansas Historical Quarterly, edited by Mark K. Christ and Patrick G. Williams and "This Day We Marched Again: A Union Soldier's Account of War in Arkansas and the Trans-Mississippi edited by Mark K. Christ. The latter is an account written by Jacob Haas, a soldier in the 9th Wisconsin Infantry, a regiment that campaigned solely in the trans-Mississippi. Drew Wagonhoffer has written detailed (and positive) reviews of both books on his blog, Civil War Books and Authors. It is good news indeed to have more trans-Mississippi primary accounts readily available.
