We stopped by Barnes & Noble earlier today, largely because we got a coupon we wanted to take advantage of using. I took the opportunity to check the magazine section and got a very pleasant surprise.

The new issues of America’s Civil War and Civil War Times came out pretty much simultaneously. Our work is featured in both.

Civil War Times features an article by JD and me on the charges of the 11th New York Cavalry (Scott’s 900) at Fairfax Court House and the 1st Delaware Cavalry at Westminster, MD that delayed Stuart’s march to Gettysburg by a full day between them. The article is the cover article for the magazine and gives our work a real spotlight. The article is extracted from two chapters of our book.

America’s Civil War includes a review of Plenty of Blame to Go Around by old friend Jeff Wert. It’s the featured review for the issue, and there’s a large, full-color image of the dust jacket. Fortunately, Jeff liked the book and gave it a very favorable review.

So, between the two magazines, it constitutes an embarrassment of riches for us, and will, undoubtedly, sell a few more books for us. The next issue of Gettysburg Magazine which is presently at the printer, includes an article by JD and me on Corbit’s Charge at Westminster, MD on June 29 that is THE most detailed treatment of that episode ever published (it has stuff in it that the book does not include), so that will be yet another showcase for the book.

We’ve been very fortunate to get so many good showcases and to have received so many wonderful reviews. Our publisher has already told us that a third hardcover printing of the book is in the works, so we’re very fortunate indeed.

    Just finished reading the article in Civil War Times and enjoyed it very much. I’m moving “Plenty of Blame to Go Around” to the top of my wish list. I hope you and Susan had a great Christmas and a wonderful New Year.
