I am going to read A Slave's Cause by Manisha Sinha. Recently I heard a Zoom broadcast by Dr. Sinha on feminism and was so impressed that I decided to read what I could find. Since feminism has roots in the abolitionist movement, I decided to start here.

Much of modern society has roots in the Second Great Awakening, for example Abolition, Women's Rights, and of course Prohibition. One of these things is not like the others.

I have recently acquired The Battle of White Sulfur Springs by Eric Wittenberg, Perryville: This Grand Havoc of Battle by Kenneth W. Noe, both volumes of The Bloody Fifth by John F. Schmutz and Too Useful to Sacrifice: Reconsidering George B. McClellan's Generalship in the Maryland Campaign from South Mountain to Antietam by Steven R. Stotelmyer on my kindle. They are in the reading queue.

I just recently acquired The Enemy Never Came - The Civil war in the Pacific Northwest by Scott McArthur. I'm excited to read this one and found it interesting because it tells the history of the PNW during the time of the Civil War. If anybody knows of any other books set in the PNW during the Civil War, please let me know.

Looks interesting, I'll have to look into it.

Next purchases will be “a fire in the wilderness” by J. ReevesI and “the slaves war” by A. Ward. The latter is very good and I recommend it. I just finished “shiloh: bloody april”, and am currently reading “no better place to die”. Everyone posting what they’re reading or will read helps me do my book shopping.

I am now halfway thru the third volume of Shelby Foote’s trilogy and am still savoring it. Getting on eBay soon after the Gettysburg trip though I made quite a haul by getting all of these books used for just a little over $30:

-The Gettysburg Campaign by Coddington
-Culp’s Hill and Cemetery Hill by Harry Pfanz
-Gettysburg The Second Day by Harry Pfanz
-Gettysburg Day Three by Jeffrey Wert
-The Fredericksburg Campaign by Francis O’Reilly
-Chancellorsville by Stephen Sears
-To the Gates of Richmond Stephen Sears

Like I said - quite a haul and now tons of books I can’t wait to get to!
