Newest book out there on the Corn-fed sharpshooter. In this case, it's the First Georgia Sharpshooter Battalion. Brown brings up the difficulty in recruiting for these units that were mandated by the Confederate Adjutant General in Richmond. Extensively researched, he also covers the biographical info on many members. There's an invaluable appendix that discusses virtually everyone who served in the unit. Terrific if you're a geneologist. Thumbs up!
