Volume Three

The third, and last, vol­ume of Carman’s man­u­script is now in the hands of Savas-Beatie. No word yet on pub­lish­ing date, but I hope later this year. It includes a chap­ter on the bat­tle of Shep­herd­stown Ford, and chap­ters sum­ming up the cam­paign, and also sup­ple­men­tal infor­ma­tion on the pre­lude to the cam­paign. A large por­tion of it is also a Bio­graph­i­cal Dic­tio­nary of every­one Car­man men­tioned in his nar­ra­tive, and also any vet­eran whose mem­oirs I cited in doc­u­ment­ing how Car­man knew what he wrote. In addi­tion to the com­man­ders this dic­tio­nary lists many com­mon sol­diers and junior offi­cers; peo­ple you will not find on Wikipedia! I’ll keep you posted on the progress towards pub­li­ca­tion, and will get back to post­ing more here too.

    No more anx­iously than I! There was a delay on my part with the maps but it is finally sorted out, and SB has the vol­ume now. Ted Savas tells me it will out in early 2015.

    Hi, and thanks for ask­ing. It is pro­gress­ing, and my guess is some­time early next year. Savas has a cover, which I will post soon. They also have been work­ing on a pub­lic­ity blurb, which should be out soon.
