Congratulations to Eric Wittenburg on the publication of his book on the 6th Pennsylvania Cavalry - I am looking forward to getting a copy soon.
Speaking of regimental histories, the topic of my last post, which regiments (North or South) would you like to see get their own histories? No, I’m not fishing for more projects. I’ve got a list of regiments that I would like to write about that will take many years (if ever) to complete. It took me seven years to research and write my history of the 37th NCT, and I’ve been collecting information on the 58th NCT for just as long, so putting together good regimental histories is not something that can be done in a matter of months. I’m just intrigued to know which areas of scholarship have the greatest interest.
So, which regiments would you like to see histories of?
