51onibqprjl-_sy344_bo1204203200_If you’ve been reading Bull Runnings for a while, you know that I’ve previewed all of the titles in Savas Beatie’s Emerging Civil War series. And you also know how these books work. Concise histories, lots of maps and illustrations, tough paperbacks, suitable for the field. The really interesting parts, to me anyway, are the appendices. So, for this newest publication, I’m going to give you the bare minimum, and flesh out those appendices for you.

Thanks Harry. I like the “tough paperbacks” description. We are pleased you noted in-depth appendices. I know Chris Mackowski and the gang put a lot of time into the appendices to flesh out as many angles and matters of interest as possible. Onward.
