Susan,

I just got a copy of the book recently, but have not had the chance to read it yet.  Pete is a friend of mine, and know he had been researching for the book for years, and the reason he delved more deeply into this subject is because of the book he did on Willie Pegram. 

IMHO, Pete is one of the better and unsung young historians of the Civil War time period.  Naturally if he finds out I wrote this, I will deny I ever said it. ;)

I'd say, give the book a chance.  It looks at a part of the Civil War that is not frequently delved into.

Regards from the Garden State,
