2013 USCT Books

2012 was a pretty good year for Civil War titles featuring United States Colored Troops, but from what I’ve found so far, 2013 is shaping up to be an even better year. This past year saw such outstanding titles as Levin’s Remembering the Battle of the Crater: War as Murder, Bryant’s The 36th Infantry United States Colored Troops in the Civil War: A History and Roster, and Coddington’s African American Faces of the Civil War: An Album.

Here’s a peek at what lies ahead in 2013:
Camp William Penn:1863-1865 by Donald Scott, Sr. (Dec 28, 2012)

Civil War General and Indian Fighter James M. Williams: Leader of the 1st Kansas Colored Volunteer Infantry and the 8th U.S. Cavalry (War and the Southwest Series) by Robert W. Lull (Feb 20, 2013)

Freedom's Witness: The Civil War Correspondence of Henry McNeal Turner (Regenerations) by Jean Lee Cole and Aaron Sheehan-Dean (Mar 1, 2013)
Milliken's Bend: A Civil War Battle in History and Memory by Linda Barnickel (Apr 15, 2013)

The Fort Pillow Massacre: North, South, and the Status of African-Americans in the Civil War Era by Bruce Tap (Aug 3, 2013)

If you know of any other titles I've missed, please leave them in the comments section.

And keep an eye out for The First Battle of Deep Bottom: Grant vs. Lee North of the James by yours truly in 2014!
