Is this by any chance "Strange Battles of the Civil War," by Webb Garrison, Jr.?

I picked up a copy of that myself (on the bargain shelf at B&N) at the tail end of February. I haven't had a chance to read it through yet, a little at a time over lunch at work. I would be interested in what you think of it. So far I've just cleared the first section. I liked the chapter on Drewry's Bluff (just down the road from here)and didn't realise the union army basically got stuck in the mud at Sabine Pass. Shows what a lack of recon can lead to.
