Originally it was my intention to write periodic Civil War book reviews. Well, with several new projects of my own underway, writing book reviews fell down the list of priorities. The book reviews I have finished thus far will remain a part of the website. As for future book reviews, I will post them as I complete them. Unfortunately, there will be no set schedule for review completion and no set list of books which are intended for review. I read many Civil War books. Right now I'm reading several books about Civil War letters as a way to inform myself regarding my current work. In the future, I may post something about one of the them. If you want to know more about my current project about the unpublished Civil War letters of an Indiana soldier, click .
