New Book and guess what?

I just bought a book I had had my eye on. The title is "The Louisiana Tigers in the Gettysburg Campaign June-July 1863". It is written by Scott L. Mingus.

I was surprized to read that Company F (Opelousas Guards) of the 8th Louisiana Infantry had that rarest of finds. Charles F Lutz was born of a German Father and a Mulatto Mother. He was raised in St Landry Parish and was able to pass himself off as a White Man.

I am looking forward to reading the rest of the book. Anyone else read this book?

No.

But I have picked up Joe Walker's new book Harvest of Death, which is about the battle of Jenkins Ferry and the end of the Camden expedition in Arkansas.

It was a pretty bloody fight. The Texas Division ("Walker's Greyhounds") lost two of the three brigadiers in it. Some of the brigades in the Arkansas Division under Churchill were consolidated into regiments after the battle because they took so many losses.

I may pick up that book. Walker's Division traveled far with little newsprint!

Yes. I would highly recommend it. Walker's writing style is a little terse, but he doesn't print any misinformation.

Considering the last book on Jenkins Ferry was written by Edwin C. Bearrs fifty years ago, I would recommend this. It also shows where Sterling Price got the idea that he was a brilliant commander of Cavalry.

Thanks for the kind words about my book! It has sold very well so far and have received some great reviews. There is a lot of new material in the book on the Tigers' activities in Pennsylvania.
