Dev Diary - May 2009 PDF Print E-mail

Yesterday Jim and I talked on the phone for a while.  Both of us trying to get a handle on where we are and where we are going.  One great thing about working with Jim is that he has a handle on EVERYTHING.  There's not a part of this project that he's not up on, so it's great to talk to him when I'm trying to get the overall picture of where we are.

Review: A History of the 3rd South Carolina Regiment: Lee’s Reliables

from TOCWOC - A Civil War Blog by Brett Schulte


This is the fourth and final review of the inaugural titles in the South Carolina Regimental-Roster Set series from Broadfoot Publishing Company. A significant portion of each review will show you how this particular volume compared to the others in the series in terms of regimental history length, amount of annotation, depth and print size of rosters, bibliography, illustrations, and maps. I do this to show readers just how different each volume can be. The South Carolina Regimental-Roster Set bears a striking external appearance to the H.E. Howard Virginia Regimental Histories series. These books were, in fact designed as a South Carolina answer to the Virginia unit histories. Broadfoot hopes to publish 50 volumes in this set, but that plan is dependent on how well these and subsequent books in the series sell. If you are interested in seeing this entire series printed, I encourage you to pick up these volumes immediately rather than put off purchases until later.

Review: Crisis of Command in the Army of the Potomac

from TOCWOC - A Civil War Blog by Brett Schulte

Simson, Jay W. Crisis of Command in the Army of the Potomac: Sheridan’s Search for an Effective General. McFarland (August 14, 2008). 245 pages, maps, illustrations, index. ISBN: 978-0786436538 $39.95 (Paperback).


As a Civil War general, how would you go about avoiding the wrath of Union Major General Phil Sheridan? The three generals Sheridan sacked, William W. Averell, Alfred T. A. Torbert, and Gouvernour K. Warren, probably should have asked rising star Ranald Mackenzie according to author Jay W. Simson. In Crisis of Command in the Army of the Potomac: Sheridan’s Search for an Effective General, author Simson covers the Civil War careers of the Union generals above, detailing how three of them met their demise at the hands of Sheridan while the fourth, Ranald Mackenzie, earned his praise and admiration.
