Currently in the middle of A Strange and Blighted Land by Gregory Coco. I began it as a tribute to Gregory. He recently passed away after a lengthy illness. Though I never met him I encountered numerous individuals during my visits to Gettysburg who spoke very highly of him. I've especially enjoyed his numerous books on the aftermath of Gettysburg, i.e. Vast Sea of Misery. Rather than dwell on the military aspects of the battle, Coco wrote of the personal hardships the soldiers as well as the citizens endured. In conclusion, I wish I had had the opportunity to have met another Louisiana expat.
