Hello SB Woofers, 
Spring is here and Shadow and I are catching gophers, snakes, snails, and moles like crazy. My Pop isn't all that happy that we lay the dead out on the umbrella base, but we are dogs. That is what we do. At least we are not eating them.

Pop is happier about the Vikings (the team, not the series). They had a good NFL draft and he is excited about the coming season. He is always excited about the Vikings--until he isn't (which is every year, for 50 years now).

Pop is also happy because one of our books from last year just won a MAJOR award. But . . . he can't tell you yet. He will in the next e-letter. It was so good he went home and lighted one of his finest cigars.


The letter below is from Mike Movius of Seattle. Mike is a moving force in reinvigorating the Civil War Round Table movement. This is VITAL to the survival of the study of the Civil War, preservation, and independent Civil War book publishing.

Many of you may remember Jerry Russell of Civil War Round Table Associates. Jerry communicated with the scores of roundtables around the country, kept them connected, excited, and engaged. Jerry died in 2003, and since that time the RT movement has waned. The average age of members is high and rising, and to call the movement "stagnated" is not too strong of a word. "Dying" is another. 

If you belong to a RT--mention this letter, take the link to your leadership, and ACT. If you do not belong to a RT, find one within driving distance. Mike can help you find one. If you are too far from one--start one!

As we move forward toward the 2019 CWRT Congress, I'm asking that you help us publicize our event by spreading our landing page.  

Please push it out to as many of your CW community contacts as is appropriate. And, do it multiple times.  

Remember that our goal is to help CWRTs to stay active, grow their membership and to expand their reach into the historic preservation and remembrance community.

Thanks for you time and energy!

Mike Movius

ECW series audio book announcement
Our very popular ECW Series is expanding to a new field. Now is your chance to listen to your favorites and add more to your wish list.

There are currently 32 titles in the ECW Series, including four released so far this year. Ten are in production to become audio, and the entire series will be available in audio format by the end of 2019!

"We're really pleased to be bringing such a great book series into the world of audio," says Savas Beatie Managing Director Theodore Savas. "We also include the maps in PDF that download with the audio file, which is something Audible offers its customers."
Emerging Civil War Series Editor Chris Mackowski couldn't agree more. "Earlier this year, Ted Savas approached me with the idea of releasing the entire ECW Series as audiobooks. I jumped at the chance because I thought the series would sound great in that format."

Several professional narrators have auditioned for and are under contract for the series, including Bob Neufeld, Joe Williams, and Joshua Saxon.
Neufeld was first attracted to the project because he loves history. "Anytime I choose a project, I want to be sure that there are solid resources behind it," says Neufeld. "I was in production on two other books for Ted Savas when this series came up. Based on my excellent experience with Ted, I was very comfortable and eager to do more for Savas Beatie."
"I hope you like what you hear," Mackowski says. "For me, it's been the sound of a dream come true."

 Fall 2019 - Round Three
Fall 2019 Title Announcement

Get those pocketbooks and bookshelves ready for our amazing titles. Here is Round Three:

The French Campaigns in the American Revolution, 1780-1783: The Diary of Count of Lauberdiere, General Rochambeau's Nephew and Aide-de-camp
By: Norman Desmarais(editor)
- The Count of Lauberdière kept one of the most remarkable diaries of the entire American Revolutionary War, and it is published here for the first time. His journal covers a host of topics and his keen eye and sharp descriptions of the Army's daily activities and movements provide a wealth of information for inquisitive readers and historians.

Bloody Ban: Banastre Tarleton and the American Revolution, 1776 - 1783
By: Oscar E. Gilbert and Catherine R. Gilbert
- The smooth prose, exceptional research, and original maps make this one of the most important books on the Revolutionary War. The authors utilized period records and personal accounts to unravel the complex story (and debunk several myths) of Tarleton's extraordinary career. As it makes clear, the cavalryman possessed an exceedingly talented military mind, but was consumed by overweening ambition that clouded his judgments.

The Winter that Won the War: The Winter Encampment at Valley Forge, 1777-1778
By: Phillip S. Greenwalt
- Historian Greenwalt takes the reader on campaign in the year 1777 and through the winter encampment, detailing the various changes that took place within Valley Forge that ultimately led to the success of the American cause. Walk with the author through 1777 and into 1778 and see how these months truly were the winter that won the war.

A Handsome Flogging: The Battle of Monmouth, June 28, 1778
By: William R. Griffith IV
- Historian Griffith retells the story of what many historians have dubbed the "battle that made the American army," and takes you along the routes trekked by both armies on their marches toward destiny. Follow in the footsteps of heroes (and a heroine) who, on a hot summer day, met in desperate struggle in the woods and farm fields around Monmouth Court House.
