I know I have been "Perryville-centric" this week, but I feel that battle and battlefield certainly are worth some attention.
Perryville Under Fire: The Aftermath of Kentucky's Largest Civil War Battle by Stuart Sanders of the Kentucky Historical Society will be available after February 24th. The link goes to Amazon.com, where it is available for pre-order.
I've met Mr. Sanders and corresponded with him frequently. If memory serves, he wrote many (or maybe all?) of the interpretive signs at the Perryville State Historic Site. I look forward to reading this book and getting a perspective of how the battle affected local residents and communities.
