We thought it would be fun to see some of our customers' favorite bookshelves or libraries for our December contest. Maybe you have a shelf dedicated to just Savas Beatie books, or maybe one exclusively for civil war biographies. No matter the organization, email your picture to Lindy at lindy@savasbeatie.com by December 27, 2012, for your chance to win a FREE copy of our newly released Simply Murder: The Battle of Fredericksburg, December 13, 1862.

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: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10151195693474327&set=a.93988909326.90863.92556804326&type=1&theater
