    It is with great sadness that I'm passing on the news regarding the death of James B, White. He enjoyed studying the Civil War era and posting here.

    Mrs. James B. White.

    Hank was a good man. We will miss him very much.

    His posts were always direct, well-informed, nuanced, and often slyly funny. He was one of the contributors that made Civil War Talk the great place that it is.

    His last major work, The Secret Life of Bacon Tait, a White Slave Trader Married to a Free Woman of Color, was released this month by LSU Press.

    So, so sorry for your loss. He was such a favorite here, and always provided such amazing information to our guests and members. We will miss him, indeed, but his posts will be valued even more.

    I am so sorry to here this. Please accept my condolences Mrs. James B. White. He was always willing to discuss things amicably, thoroughly, and always with an open mind. A good teacher that was also willing to learn from others. He will be missed.

    I'm so sorry to hear of this. Please know that James was a special member and well respected by all. His posts were always informative and the voice of reason.

    Even though we've not met please accept my deepest condolences and know that I'm thinking of you both.

    He will indeed be missed.

    His posts were always rational, informative and more often than not, would make one stop and reevaluate their original
    positions on various topics.

    Condolences to the James B. White family.
