I came across mention of this forthcoming release which, given recent discussion on CWT about Whitworth rifles and Jack Hinson, I expect will be of great interest to some people here:

The Myth of the Civil War Sniper: The Fact, Fiction, and Science behind the Civil War’s Most-Told Stories
by Scott Hippensteel
Stackpole Books - scheduled for release November 15, 2021

A few years ago the author published a book about the influence of geology on the war. I have not read it.
