Ms. Kenya Savas

My Fellow Book Lovers, 

Other than finding out that Pop keeps his good humidor behind a group of books with fake fronts on his bottom library shelf, it has been a pretty slow 2021. I like his Java box-cut Drew Estate cigars. He is not all that happy about it.

I also converted Mark Wade's classic Scottish smoking jacket into my own, and I am using his pipe. He isn't all that happy about it, either.

About the only excitement I have had recently is when Mom told me two "neighborhood dog friends" were at the back door wanting to know if I would go outside and play. I got excited, and ran to the door, only to find this:

Ah, hello? You live here with me. (That's Shadow and Kyoto.) They are just trying to cheer me up. I went out and played anyway.


We asked on the Facebook Gettysburg Discussion Group how you use our SB Map Atlas Series books. Seth gave us this photo and description:

"I like to stand around and pontificate to my family in our kitchen. In reality I read them through then I keep them close by while reading any other Gettysburg book so I can follow along, I look forward to bringing them to the battlefield when the snow melts. Both gifts for my birthday a few weeks ago."

Awesome! And the SB ladies, including me, Miss Kenya, voted unanimously. Seth gets $10.00 deposited into his Savas Beatie account to use however he likes on any books in stock! Thanks for playing, Seth!


See below for all the new news. And there is a lot.
FOR THOSE KEEPING SCORE: Here are the latest numbers (you can still pick up a set, but hurry!) 

The Bachelder Papers (3 vols): 270 sold out of 300 sets

Ed Bearss' The Campaign for Vicksburg (3 vols): 425 sold out of 500 sets

Bachelder's History of Gettysburg: 535 sold out of 600 copies

The Bachelder Map Set (7 maps, 5 large oversize 100# sheets/matte finish): 392 sold out of 500 sets  

We get orders or inquiries daily. These will arrive now in mid-May (the printers are having COVID work issues, can only man so many people on the work lines, and so forth). It is likely most or all of these will be spoken for by that time, so please place your order now because when we get word they are shipping the pre-order prices go up 20%.

SHOP LOCAL/ SHOP SMALL: Thanks again for supporting independent publishing over your giant corporate everything else sellers. Amazon does not need your money or care about you. We do care, and we love publishing. 
You will have to excuse me. I am having a panic attack.

1ST 100 sets are hand-numbered / signed by Publisher
on bottom of the title page.  

Since we first reprinted The Bachelder Papers in 2020, we have been receiving a steady drip of calls, emails, FB posts, Instagram notices, and so on to reprint a few different things. Near the top is:

The Official Records volumes for Gettysburg (vol. 27, parts 1, 2, and 3). 

Finding a full set of these in very good condition is tough, and for a fair price is darn near impossible. The CD version is very hard to use, and the online versions are often error-filled, and also hard to use and clunky. Ugh. The inexpensive paperbacks you can get are Print on Demand, cheaply made, and mine fell apart after minimal use. 


We are your sole source provider.
They will not be available on Amazon, or at a discount price.

You don't pay until the books are ready to ship (est. mid-August 2021).

TERMS: We understand if you would like to pay in three or four installments.
No problem. No extra charge.


PAGE COUNT: Roughly 3,340 pp. total. (More than 1,000 pages longer than The Bachelder Papers!)

BINDING: Heavy buckram covers for long use, SEWN & GLUED for what we call "forever use," with matching head and foot bands. 

STAMPING: Gold foil on the spine

PAPER: high quality acid-free, 40# to match the OR last printing. 

PRINT RUN: In a word, small. We anticipate only 250 - 300 sets. (Theoretically it could go up, but if it does it won't be by much.)  

PRICE: First 100 sets: $169.00Yes, reasonable! 
Sets 101+: $179.00. 
Shipping TBD. It will be the exact cost (no handling charge, ever). 

PRE-ORDER NOW--Email, then call.
EMAIL: Specify you want to reserve the Gettysburg OR. If you have recently provided your credit card info, note that in the email and there is no need to follow up with a call.

Otherwise: After you send the email, call us at 916-941-6896 to provide your credit card information. Remember, your card will not be charged at this time, and will only be charged once your order is here and ready to ship!


Don't miss out on these new releases!
Hunt's third installment in his award-winning Meade and Lee series is grounded upon official reports, regimental histories, letters, newspapers, and other archival sources. Together, they provide a day-by-day, and sometimes minute-by-minute, account of the Union army's first post-Gettysburg offensive action and Lee's efforts to repel it.
 This first engagement between ironclad steam warships represented naval, industrial, technological, and social revolutions during the American Civil War. The dramatic story unfolds through primary accounts of men who lived it.
Audio announcement and contest!
We are pleased to announce that Seceding from Secession: The Civil War, Politics, and the Creation of West Virginia by Eric Wittenberg, Edmund Sargus, Jr., and Penny Barrick is now available on audio.

A Look Inside a Customer Library - Shane R.

This month, we caught up with one of our customers, Shane, who was very happy to share his Civil War background and his library. 
We asked him to answer the following questions. Take it away, Shane!
1.) How old were you when you got the Civil War "bug" and when did you begin collecting Civil War books? 
I have been interested in history for almost 30 years and the older I got the more interested I became. I got interested in the Civil War in 4th grade when I read my first Gettysburg book and my interest grew from there. Then in 8th grade I learned my grandfather was a Navy Seabee during World War 2 and was stationed on Guam in the Marianas Island chain and that got me interested in World War 2. I started buying books with my allowances and really started adding when I got a job and now my interest in history has grown more every year since then. I also read special operations stuff and Gulf War books.  
2.) How do you organize your library? 
Right shelf is all Gettysburg books middle shelf is all non Gettysburg Civil War books. Left shelf is all World War Two books. Last shelf is an overflow World War 2 shelf.
3.) Do you have a dream job?
My dream is to someday become a licensed battlefield guide at Gettysburg.

5 Things with Bert Dunkerly
This  month, Bert Dunkerly, co-author of the recently released Embattled Capital: A Guide to Richmond During the Civil War gives us 5 facts about this latest title.

Take it away Bert...

1.) More Civil War battles were fought within fifteen miles of Richmond than anywhere else.
2.) The preserved battlefield land around Richmond has grown by thousands of acres in the last decade.
3.) There are many Civil War-related outdoor exhibits and new museums in the city.
4.) Richmond's Civil War history includes not just battlefields, but hospitals, industry, prisons, the home front, naval bases, government offices, cemeteries, campsites, fortifications, and more.  
5.) No city struggles more with the memory of the war, and the debate is ongoing.
