I was just listening to an interview with Jim Ogden and he recommended reading the five issues of Blue & Gray Magazine that covered Chickamauga for a good overview of the battle/campaign. I have read on here and elsewhere, folks recommending various issues of the magazine as good overviews of other battles as well. So I have a couple of questions about acquiring back issues:
- Other than Blue & Gray directly or eBay, are there any good sources for picking up back issues? I'm not looking for collector's quality. Just good reading copies are fine.
- It seems the Chickamauga issues are well regarded. What other issues are considered essential or must haves?
- Do battlefield bookstores still carry back issues on their particular battles? It seems they would run out at some point?
