New Gallagher “Essay” Book to focus on Petersburg

by Brett Schulte on June 27, 2006 · 0 comments

I found out recently over at the Civil War Discussion Group that Gary Gallagher’s popular series of essay books which focus on a certain campaign in each volume will be FINALLY moving to Petersburg. The details are at the bottom of the post by “Unionrep”. In his post, he/she states:

As to the question about a Gallagher book, one is planned that will cover the Petersburg campaign. This year’s tour covered Cold Harbor and the Petersburg campaign up through the Crater and next year will cover the action up to the fall of Petersburg and Richmond. After next year’s conference, the essays will be compiled and that would put publication no earlier than spring 2008.

This is GREAT news if true, and I see no reason not to believe the poster.
