Lanny K. Smith, the author of two massive self-published small print run volumes on the Battle of Stones’ River (Murfreesboro), one volume for the Union and one for the Confederates, has produced another Civil War book along the same lines. This one, titled Morgan’s Cavalry 1861-1862, follows the raids of John Hunt Morgan’s Confederate Cavalry. Lanny was kind enough to send along the details.
