Last year Savas Beatie announced that the second entry in its series of Civil War battle map studies would cover First Bull Run. I was involved in reviewing the manuscript, and today I received more information on the book from marketing director Sarah Keeney.
The Maps of First Bull Run: An Atlas of the First Bull Run (Manassas) Campaign, including the Battle of Ball’s Bluff, June-October 1861 (ISBN 978-1-932714-60-9), by Bradley M. Gottfried, is scheduled for release in May, 2009. The 7″ X 10″ hardcover will feature 51 full color maps with facing text and run 144 pages. It will retail for $34.95.
Anyone wishing to “reserve” a copy can do so here; register to be notified when the book is ready to ship.
In the coming weeks, I’ll have some specific content for you – including, hopefully, a sample map. Also look for my interview with the author.
