My Latest Book

I am pleased to share that my latest book, Remembering Virginia's Confederates, is in the final stages of editing and will be released to the public on January 11, 2010. It is also now available for pre-order on sites such as and Barnes & The book is part of a larger series with Arcadia Publishing that includes works on North Carolina, Georgia, Kentucky, and Arkansas. My book is a 128 page, 200-plus captioned photograph volume that chronicles the wide range of Virginians who served the Confederate cause in military and/or political capacities during the Civil War (including those who served in the Confederate Navy). It highlights many of the high-ranking generals and politicians, but also provides a compelling sampling of junior officers and enlisted men. The book also touches on the important work of Southern women (the wives, daughters, and sisters of Confederate veterans) in preserving the memory of the Confederacy in the decades after the war. Overall, the book is meant to provide a non-biased, analytical look at what motivated these individuals to serve this particular cause.

The photographs for this book came from a variety of sources, including Virginia Military Institute, the Library of Congress, Gettysburg National Military Park, and from private collections. Staff from the Museum of the Confederacy also provided valuable guidance and consulting support for this project. Further, I am particularly grateful to my friend Col. J.E.B. Stuart IV (the great-grandson of famous Confederate Cavalry General J.E.B. Stuart) for writing the book's foreword. For more information on Remembering Virginia's Confederates, please visit, Barnes &, or the Arcadia Publishing website.
