Looking through my own private library, it may be a surprise, but I don't have a singe book covering brigades.

But I got a major slew of CW memoirs. Easily 60%-70% of my CW books are memoirs, with the rest covering different campaigns or battles then the miscellaneous. Shows where my interests lie...

Perhaps I ought to stock up on some brigade/regimental books.

Nathanb1,
Whoa! I just checked into this Texas brigade by Simpson and the 4 volume bookset! I like the unabridged booksets. Thanks and I just added this to my list at amazon. I think the only unabridged bookset I have is on Lee- 4 volumes by Freeman.

MarylandLine; wow! awesome library you have on brigades! I totally forgot to put: In Deadly Earnest The History of the First Missouri Brigade CSA by Gottschalk! I do not have: The South's Finest: The First Missouri Brigade by Tucker.
