Brad Gottfried / Mine Run Maps
« Last post by lamarwilliams on February 25, 2013, 07:16:10 PM »
I was wondering what the status of the next book in the map series is.  I believe it was going to deal with Mine Run and other 1863 post-Gettysburg movements???

Great series!
General Savas Beatie Discussion / Re: What's the Significance? Book Contest

Amanda W. replied:

Lincoln and Jefferson Davis face each other from the west and east of Kentucky, respectively, with the approximate location of Perryville between them. Perryville as the high-water mark of the Confederacy in the West represents the ultimate contest between the two nations in that state. Correspondingly, the Union Army's approach to that battle was from the (north)west and the Confederate army marched there from the (south)east.

Also, it is interesting that Lincoln is shown sitting and Davis standing. The body language of the former implies calm, determined, presiding possession, while the latter's posture communicates defiance and rebellion, rising up as if to leave the domain of the former.

In honor of Black History Month, we have put together a short questionnaire about African Americans in the Civil War. Take the survey here for a chance to win a FREE copy of The U.S. Army's First, Last, and Only All-Black Rangers (paperback) by Edward L. Posey.
Here is a nice story we received as an entry:

In our December issue of Libri Novus, we asked our readers to submit photos of their favorite bookshelves. This photo had an interesting story behind it:

The photo is of William Henry Forbush. He went through the war as "Furbush" --the way his name was recorded.

He served 3 years - for 14 months in the Thirteenth Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry, Co. K, until wounded at 2nd Bull Run, Aug 30 1862.

He spent Sept. - Dec. in the Hospital at Broad & Cherry Streets, Philadelphia.

He then finished his 3 year enlistment - transferring to the 3rd US Artillery, Battery C. He participated in the cavalry pursuit of Lee's Army after Gettysburg.

The Savas Beatie books in the photo relate to the places Forbush was involved with.

Here is the link to the photo:

We spend a lot of time designing and tweaking our dust jackets. The jacket for Divided Loyalties is a wonderful example, and also part of our first contest in 2013! What do you notice about the men on the back of the jacket? (Hint: Look at their positioning.) Send an email to mentioning what you think the significance is, and you will be entered in a contest to win a copy of a Savas Beatie title with a bookplate signed by the author!

We thought it would be fun to see some of our customers' favorite bookshelves or libraries for our December contest.
