Civil War Book Club

Here's a new site I just learned about through a facebook posting (click on the link in this entry's title). It was established by Kraig McNutt, who runs the very enjoyable blogs the Battle of Franklin and the Civil War Gazette.

This new club will give members a chance to review at least one or two books per year, for reviews to be publishes on the site. Members can choose to be lead reviewers or panel reviewers, helping the lead reviewers on books.

I think I'm going to give it a try, as a panel reviewer, and hopefully the experience I've gained here in writing book reviews will only serve to help me. I admit I'll be a little bit nervous posting to this new club, but why not give it a shot.

It strikes me as a fascinating concept and I hope others see it and join it as well.

Good luck with this new venture, Kraig!

  1. Richard, Nice site!! Thought I would let you know about my new book - CONFEDERATE GOLD AND SILVER. It's a story about the missing Confederate treasury and it has two stories within the main storyline; one that takes place in 2011 (the 150th anniversary of the start of the Civil War), and the other in 1863. Readers can follow the book's two principle characters, Paul Waring, a retired state cop, and Captain Judiah Francis, of the Army of Northen Virginia, as they are involved with the treasury in two different time periods. Check out the book at www.readpete.com or at www.readpete.net or at www.westbowpress.com You can email me at peterfwarren@yahoo.com THANKS!! Peter F. Warren
