Special Book Offer - Confederate Colonels

I'm sure many of you are aware that Bruce Allardice, author of the highly-popular "More Confederate Generals", "Texas Burial Sites of Civil War Notables" and "Kentuckians in Gray: Confederate Generals and Field Officers of the Bluegrass State" is a regular contributor to our discussions here on the History-Sites.Com message boards.

Now, Bruce has completed for release the middle of this month, a new reference work which will become a mainstay of every Civil War historians library. Many of us have known that Bruce was working diligently on a work which proposed to identify ALL the Confederate colonels and offer a short biography on each. The task, at first glance, seems overwhelming, but Bruce has done it.

This month "Confederate Colonels: A Biographical Register" will be released by University of Missouri Press. This 464-page book offers sourced biographies on each of 1,583 Confederate full colonels.

I have spoken with Bruce and University of Missouri Press and have arranged to offer these books both signed and unsigned for our History-Sites.Com visitors and contributors.

Please visit our order page where you can purchase this amazing new book by credit card, check or money order. A part of your purchase will help to pay our bills here on the message boards.

I would really like to see our History-Sites.Com family purchase fifty to one-hundred or more of these books, as a special "thank you" to Bruce and to help us approach other university presses and publishers to make similar special offers. The more books we can sell through the message boards, the more we can attract our favorite Civil War authors to this site.
