11th Wisconsin in the Civil War: A Regimental History

Well good news, finally, the proofs are on their way to me and my book is about 4 weeks from printing. There was a possibility even as late as last fall that the book would be out by Christmas (07). But that was delayed when I asked to include some more material and a better regiment roster.  I should have the proofs by Tuesday or so, then it’s a quick read, I make the index (takes about 2 weeks, 2 hours per day), and back to McFarland it goes. I will keep those of you interested in purchasing a copy up to date. Thanks!

    Just wondering if you had com across the article by Earl J. Hess “Confiscation and the Northern War Effort: The Army of the Southwest at Helena” in the Arkansas Historical Quarterly, Vol. 44, Nol 1, pp. 56-75, 1985.

  6. Chris says:

    Bob, thanks for the post. Yes I have a copy of that, why do you ask?

    My interest is in the 33rd Illinois and I found this while looking into the cotton confiscation issue. It seemed to cover the matter quite well. Also, you have made some comments on Samuel R. Curtis and his relative involvement in the cotton business. It seems to me that there was no love lost between Curtis and his successor and there may have been a “hatchet job” done on Curtis.
