For Cause & For Country

Hello everyone, I have been kindly invited to do a bit of “guest blogging” about my new book, For Cause & For Country: A Study of the Affair at Spring Hill and the Battle of Franklin. Published by O’More Publishing the book was released on March 27. Both hardcover and softcover editions are available and may be purchased by visiting the Civil War Interactive sponsored site Copies are also available at various Middle Tennessee sites such as the Carter House, Carnton, Rippavilla, etc. Eastern National, which handles books for the National Parks, just signed on to order books. But rather than drone on about the book I thought perhaps I could field questions any of you have. Look forward to hearing from you.

Eric, I talked with you a week or so ago about LT James S (actually it’s T) Dunlap with the 44th Missouri Reg. You were going to see if you find any more information about him. I did find a few records on him. He did infact die at The battle of Franklin, BUT it was 11 days later. Also he fought in the Mexican war from 1846-48 as a private and at the battle of Shiloh as a captain where he was taken captive for 7 months then returned to Mo and discharged for a disability. I down loaded his service record and his middle initial could be confused with an S
Anu luck on your side. Thnaks for any help you can give. Ron
