Dear SB Readers,
This Internet fame is STILL killing me. 
By making me fat. 
Thank you Sarah B., Mary S., and others for sending me milk bones, peanut butter chews, tasty beef small-crunch  biscuits, etc.  

Unfortunately (depending how you look at it), I am juuuust tall enough to get to the counter and knock down one of the boxes. Which I did. I then ate the whole thing. 

Speaking of Milkbones . . . Congratulations to Mary Strickler for being drawn as the winner of a FREE Emerging Civil War book. (You know the saying, "You can't win if you don't play....")
Sales and interest in The War Outside My Window continues apace!

We are down to a few hundred copies of the second edition, and a third edition is being ordered now. Descendants sent us previously unpublished photos of LeRoy's mother Mary Gresham and his sister Minnie from the early 1850s, and we have the photo of brother Thomas in uniform - all will be in the next printing. 

Jan Croon sets out today on a new book tour, beginning in Pennsylvania and Ohio, then Georgia and, if the hurricane misses or peters out, up through the Carolinas. Click HERE for her complete schedule. If you are within driving distance, come hear her talk and present on this amazing book and get a signed copy (or get your copy signed). If you know friends close by, tell them! 

Confederate Veteran magazine just published a wonderful article on LeRoy and his diary, which helped boost sales again and introduce a lot of folks to this remarkable story. Also, teachers have been asking, so we are introducing a complete curriculum guide for the classroom--and it is perfect for deeply interested readers, too.

Our 7th book in the Savas Beatie Military Atlas series, The Maps of Fredericksburg, is almost 40% sold out already and has just been released! Please leave reviews on this (and all our books--it matters!), and pick up your first edition copy while you can. We have 'em with signed author bookplates. Click HERE for more details. 


We are pleased to let you know that Dr. Dennis Rasbach, who played an influential role in helping us with  The War Outside My Window: The Civil War Diary of LeRoy Wiley Gresham, 1861-1865 , edited by Jan Croon, has a new book: I Am Perhaps Dying: The Medical Backstory of Spinal Tuberculosis Hidden in the Civil War Diary of LeRoy Wiley Gresham , which has just been released, AND the audio version will be out in just a couple weeks! Congratulations Dennis!  
Speaking of audio books... The magnificent recently released study September Mourn: The Dunker Church of the Antietam Battlefield, by Alann Schmidt and Terry Barkley, has just been released in audio, narrated by Edison McDaniels! Give it a listen, by clicking here and downloading your copy today!


Continuing where we left off in the last newsletter (with more info below in the newsletter), here are a couple more titles from our forthcoming Spring 2019 list:  

Civil War:
by Kenneth R. Rutherford (May 2019). This fascinating and deeply researched study of landmines and their use, with modern repercussions, is by one of the world's leading experts on the subject. Expect a lot of buzz about this one. 

Lincoln Takes Command: The Campaign to Seize Norfolk and the Destruction of the CSS Virginia
by Steve Norder (June 2019) is the first detailed examination of the role of Lincoln and the unfolding of this early-war campaign. The president undertook a p ersonal reconnaissance of southeastern Virginia during the 1862 Peninsula campaign, ordered troops to the south side of the James, and demonstrated Norfolk's vulnerability to capture.  
Your support of our publishing program helps keep Civil War publishing alive. Please leave reviews of our books online, share our titles and authors via social media, and please-- no more Milkbones. I beg you...

 Spring 2019 Title Announcement
Introducing a new column!

For the next few newsletters, we will feature a handful of our Spring 2019 titles. This is our way of rolling them out and preparing you and your bookshelves for some great additions.  Here is Round One:

Gettysburg's Peach Orchard: Longstreet, Sickles, and the Bloody Fight for the "Commanding Ground" Along the Emmitsburg Road by James A. Hessler and
Britt C. Isenberg
- One of the most influential actions of the second day of battle at Gettysburg occurred nearly one mile west of Little Round Top in farmer Joseph Sherfy's peach orchard. Hessler and Isenberg combine the military aspects of the fighting with human interest stories in a balanced treatment of the bloody attack and defense of Gettysburg's Peach Orchard.

"Lee is Trapped, and Must Be Taken": Eleven Fateful Days after Gettysburg, July 4-14, 1863 by Thomas J. Ryan and Richard R. Schaus
- A comprehensive study focusing on the immediate aftermath of the battle and addressing how Maj. Gen. George G. Meade organized and motivated his Army of the Potomac in response to President Abraham Lincoln's mandate to bring about the "literal or substantial destruction" of Gen. Robert E. Lee's retreating Army of Northern Virginia.

America's Buried History: Landmines in the Civil War by Kenneth R. Rutherford
- This traces the development of landmines from their first use before the Civil War, to the early use of naval mines, through the establishment of the Confederacy's Army Torpedo Bureau, the world's first institution devoted to developing, producing, and fielding mines in warfare.

Join us in Gettysburg...
FREE tour of Gettysburg will be given by the Georgia Volunteer Infantry Regiment (7th, 8th, 9th, and 11th) author Rick Allen on the following dates:

Saturday, September 29 - 10am - noon
Saturday, October 27 - 10am - noon
Saturday, November 24 - 10am - noon

All tours will meet at the same spot, which is the Arkansas Monument on West Confederate Avenue.

These tours are going to follow the July 2, 1863 attack of the four Georgia regiments featured in the rosters. The tour will discuss the tactical decisions facing Anderson's men that day and the resulting decimation of the brigades command structure. Anderson's brigade was more seriously damaged at Gettysburg than most people realize. For example, the 8th Georgia Infantry lost 30 of its 36 officers that day while taking 53% casualties and the 11th Georgia ended July 2nd having taken losses of 65%. This tour will revolve around the reasons for this, by way of focusing on the specifics of the brigade's three separate attacks on July 2, 1863.

Attendees should be prepared to walk for approximately a mile through rough, uneven terrain . . . so a moderate level of physical fitness is required.

Out and About
From a photo in a barn to a Mr. Savas sighting, here is a selection of recent photos taken of our esteemed authors. 
Here's one of the best photos of distinguished Savas Beatie authors we have to date. Special thanks to Mr. Sommers, who emailed us this photo taken at the National Congress of Civil War Round Tables at the National Civil War Museum in Harrisburg, PA.
Have you ever been interviewed in a barn? Well, Spring 2019 author Ron Kirkwood ("Too Much for Human Endurance": The George Spangler Farm Hospitals and the Battle of Gettysburg) can check that off his bucket list. Seen here on the right, Ron was part of Harrisburg radio WITF Smart Talk broadcast from the George Spangler Farm in Gettysburg.
