Happy 2020 Woofs and Milkbones!
Why am I wearing glasses, you may be asking? It is because I officially hit early-middle age at 5 (or 35 in dog years) and it is hard for me to read the fine print regarding the ingredients on the new dog cookies I got for Christmas. I want to make sure they are healthy, or I am going to give them all to Shadow.
Speaking of Christmas--how was yours? Lots of Savas Beatie books in the stockings and under the tree? I sure hope so. I got a new large cow hip joint to munch on, a new hoodie, and lots of scraps and snacks. The only sad part was it was the first for Pop without Riley in 15 years. It bugged him. 
A couple weeks before Xmas, Mr. Ted ordered me onto the fireplace (which is where he sends me for my time-outs). I thought I was in trouble. Not this time. Instead, he crossed his arms (which tells me to sit), and snapped this Christmas photo. I like it, and wanted to share it with you in case you are not on my mailing card list.
The new year is here, and I know Pop has a lot cooking. A new SB Atlas book -- The Maps of the Cavalry at Gettysburg by some fella named Brad Gottfried is on the way to the printer, as are two reprints, and lots of new things in the pipeline. Several new books out also. See elsewhere in this jammed newsletter.
I wrote this letter a few days ago, but the screaming has just stopped in my house. What screaming, you may be asking (see how I did that?). Pop pacing up and down during the Wildcard playoff game cheering about how the Vikings, without a slot cornerback on the roster, went into New Orleans and whooped rear end. He is a happy guy. I know so because he gets so excited he walks into the kitchen while pacing, stops near the dog cookie dish, forgets he has given me cookie after cookie already, and keeps tossing them to me. 
Big year. Big dreams. Big books. 
Peace, good health, and lots of warm woofs from me, Shadow, Roscoe, and the ghost of Riley.
Miss Kenya

 NEW Releases!
We are pleased to announce two new releases:
The successes that crowned Lincoln's short time in Hampton Roads changed the nation's commander in chief by giving him insight that sustained him through the rest of the war.
The sad plight of the Five Civilized Tribes-the Cherokee, Choctaw, Creek (Muscogee), and Seminole-during America's Civil War is both fascinating and often overlooked. This book reveals the complexity and the importance of their bloody civil war.
The large 3D image of the CSS Virginia on the back cover is incredible to look at.
Award News!
Michael C. Hardy Awarded Robertson Prize

The Robert E. Lee Civil War Library & Research Center of Central New Jersey has awarded the 2018 Dr. James I. Robertson Jr. Literary Prize for Confederate History to Michael C. Hardy for his book General Lee's Immortals: The Battles and Campaigns of the Branch-Lane Brigade in the Army of Northern Virginia, 1861-1865.    
Mr. Hardy's brigade level study of the North Carolinians of Generals Branch and Lane of the ANV is a brigade level tome at its very best. The book covers the oft unheralded North Carolina brigade's and campaigns and battles from the outbreak of war and the brigade's organization to the surrender of Lee's Army of Northern Virginia at Appomattox Court House in April 1865.  
Hardy's volume not only covers the brigade's battle action, with an exhaustive amount of research and keen analysis, but also details the sacrifices, deprivations, triumphs, and ultimate defeat of these proud battle-hardened veterans. This is a brigade narrative the way it should be written and deserves a place on the book shelf of any Civil War reader.
The Dr. James I. Robertson Jr. Literary Prize for Confederate History honors the late Dr. James Robertson for his outstanding contribution and teaching in the field of civil War and Confederate History as the one time Alumni distinguished Professor of History at Virginia Tech University.
Congratulations, Michael, on a job well done!
5 Things...
To begin 2020, we are re-introducing our feature 5 Things which highlights our authors. For January, we would like to introduce you to Lincoln Takes Command author Steve Norder. Here, he shares five interesting facts about the book and his journey writing it.

1.) The most enjoyable aspect of creating a book is the research. It is the hunt that excites.

2.) To me Abraham Lincoln had four characteristics suited to the events of his time. Those were a willingness to learn, a vision of purpose, an ability to adapt, and a way to compartmentalize his worries.

3.) The enemy's army is marching toward your city. Your own side's army and navy are trying to evacuate as fast as they can but need more time. As the city mayor, what can you do? Mayor William Lamb of Norfolk, Va., goes to the edge of town to await the Union army's general. He brings with him a long proclamation and a set of "rusty keys." He then proceeds to surrender the city by slowly reading his proclamation, which provides a review of the city's history, and ceremoniously turning over the keys to the Union general.

4.) The Civil War careers of major generals John E. Wool and John A. Dix seemed to have been linked. For various reasons, but mostly with his inability to get along with the local populations, Wool was shifted in command assignments three times. His replacement each time -- in Baltimore, Fort Monroe, and New York City -- was Dix. Finally, Wool was sent home to Troy to await a new assignment, which never came.

5.) In putting together a book not everything happens as an author wants. One example, is the search for the Miami. This ship, formerly the Lady Le Merchant, was bought by Salmon Chase's treasury department to carry Washington's VIPs including President Lincoln. Despite many searches through the usual online photo sites no Miami image could be found. We had to settle for some generic drawings of treasury cutters.
