I will be in the Amelia Island area for 8 days. So I went to Fort Clinch already and will see Yellow Bluffs Fort at some point. While at Fort Clinch I purchased Thunder on the River by Daniel L. Schafer. I was wondering if there are other books about the Civil War in Florida I should pick up while I am here? So are there books worth reading on the subject?

I saw 3 or 4 books at local book stores today about the Civil War in Florida. I may buy one or two before I leave Florida.

Within the past year I have read The Battle Of Marianna, Florida and The Battle Of Natural Bridge, Florida,The Confederate Defense Of Tallahassee by Dale Cox and am currently about 2/3 into Pensacola During The Civil War,A Thorn In The Side Of The Confederacy by George F. Pearce. Couple of years ago I read By The Noble Daring Of Her Sons: The Florida Brigade Of The Army Of Tennessee by Jonathan C. Sheppard. All good books.
