The book about the Battle of Monroe's Crossroads is a very good read. I enjoyed it so much I may reread it some time. The story of Kilpatrick's "nightshirt skedaddle" is really very humorous. Why no movie has ever been made about General Kilpatrick is beyond me. He seemed to always be involved in some shenanigan or other. I call him the "comic relief" of the Civil War--well as close as you can come to comedy in those years.

I can't wait to read the new book on all Gettysburg cavalry action. I hope as soon as a name has been attached to the project we will know so we can have a pre-order with Amazon.
