American Civil War Years: The Michigan Experience (The Reenactors' Telling) has just been released! Haven't seen it yet but excited about the prospect. Blurbs say this: "This beautiful photo book features the reenactors of the American Civil War era as their actions tell the stories of the going off to war, camp life, battles and surrender. It also covers the politics and the society of the time." It "focuses on Michigan's role in the Civil War and its many contributions to the war effort. It highlights the roles of women both in battle and in society at the time. It also highlights African-Americans and Native Americans who fought for the Union cause along with the rest of Michigan's 90,000 soldiers. In addition, the book offers a bounty of resources about Michigan's Civil War history to encourage a variety of learning activities and day trips for families and classrooms alike."
The authors, editors, and contributors are folks devoted to the Michigan Civil War story. It's available on Amazon, and hopefully in many outlets. Congrats to those involved!
