I have an update on my forthcoming book The Battle of Brandy Station: North America’s Largest Cavalry Battle for those of you who might be interested. The book is being published by The History Press of Charleston, South Carolina. Originally, I was told that the book would not be out until late May, just before Memorial Day. However, I have already signed off on the page galleys and the book is actually ready to go to the printer just as soon as the cover design work is completed.

I am one of the presenters at a conference on Civil War cavalry operations being held at Liberty University the weekend of March 26-28, 2009, and today I was advised that the book will be out in time for the conference.

So, for those of you who are interested in this book, your wait has been shortened by three months.

By the way, I am also doing another cavalry conference at Longwood University in February of next year that’s put on by my friend Patrick Schroeder. More on that as information comes available.

    The Liberty program looks fantastic. Have you done this one in the past, or is the cavalry simply this year’s topic? is it worth a long flight?

    I haven’t done it previously. I was supposed to do it two years ago but had to pull out due to a scheduling conflict. You’re right–it does look terrific. I think it might well be worth a long flight.

    On the subject of books, I was at the Monocacy Battlefield after Thanksgiving and the subject of your study of the battle came up. Any news?
