Louisiana Tigers book update

Many of you have asked about the status of my upcoming book on the Louisiana Tigers in the Gettysburg Campaign. LSU Press sent me word that the book is now at the typesetter and I should expect galley proofs about June 3-4. I will proof the text and layout, and then I will index the book. Everything is due back to the publisher by June 24 for their final approval. Assuming there are no changes, the book should be then added to the schedule for their printer. It will be published on archival quality, library compliant permanent book paper manufactured by P.H. Glatfelter’s paper mill in Chillicothe, Ohio. The book is expected to ship in early October to those who have pre-ordered it.
I have a series of talks and book signings being arranged for the autumn and winter, including several Civil War Round Tables and various historical societies in this area. I am also working on a swing through Louisiana for several personal appearances.
I am thankful for my friend Rhode Island historian and author Brent Nosworthy, who has used me as a reference and proofreader for some of his past works. He was kind enough to return the favor by writing the foreword to this new book.
Pre-orders are being accepted at amazon.com.
