Hat Tip to the fine Confederate Book Review blog for sharing this information.
Here is a direct link to an entry about a new book Rebels on the Border by Aaron Astor. The description certainly catches my attention as an interesting new perspective on the subject.
It sounds like it will be a nice fit with Anne Marshall's Creating a Confederate Kentucky, or at least may touch on some of the same issues and topics in the aftermath of the war and emancipation. It is certainly a book that I look forward to acquiring and reading in the future.
