Mr Wittenburg,

I just finished reading your book "The Battle of Monroe's Crossroads and the Civil War's Final Campaign" today.  I couldn't put it down. I was reading it in the doctor's office and during TV ads and in the car.  Kilpatrick was such a character, but I really enjoyed learning about some of the other less well know officers in the book and even comments by enlisted men and local civilains.

Your description of the early morning raid on sleeping Federals and Lil Kil's mad half-dressed skedaddle for the safety of the swamp  made the action so vivid.

Some new favorites I "met" through your book are Colonel Charles Crews, Capt Alexander Shannon, Lt Colonel William Stough, Colonel Alfred Rhett and even "Alice." 

I have your "Rush's Lancers" which I look forward to reading.
