Hello My name is Susan I am a bookaholic last book I bought was two days ago. 


*raises hand*

I'm right with you, Sister! :D

Have you read Perryville: This Grand Havoc of Battle by Kenneth W. Noe?

Here's a link if you're not familiar with it and would like to know more:

A few years back, I used some of Mr. Noe's comments about Braxton Bragg to put together a short (like about 10 minutes' worth) presentation for my Roundtable's luncheon group, called "What's Ailing Braxton Bragg?"

Not familiar with any book about Cumberland Gap, but did visit it years ago. What I remember most is my mother and I getting out of the car, looking around at the remains of a fort that had been up there (Fort McCook, I think was the name), and wondering how in the heck anybody got guns up there! The road, as I recall, was quite steep. In fact, I wouldn't be at all surprised if I were to learn that it was the essentially the same road used back in the 1860s.
