It's time to start new books in 2007 and a cadre of good ones have come out in the last few months from Louisiana State University Press and University of South Carolina Press. Hopefully in the titles related to the antebellum through Reconstruction eras you will find something to peak your interest.

An American Aristocracy: Southern Planters in Antebellum Philadelphia by Daniel Kilbride


The Southern Literary Messenger, 18341864 by Benjamin Minor New Introduction by Jonathan Daniel Wells


Crafting the Overseer's Image by William E. Wiethoff


Soil Exhaustion as a Factor in the Agricultural History of Virginia and Maryland, 16061860 by Avery Odelle Craven


Randall Lee Gibson of Louisiana: Confederate General and New South Reformer by Mary Gorton McBride


Beleaguered Winchester: A Virginia Community at War, 18611865 by Richard R. Duncan


River of Dreams: Imagining the Mississippi before Mark Twain by Thomas Ruys Smith

Some of these titles look VERY interesting, in particular the book on Randall Gibson and Craven's classic book on soil exhaustion, now reprinted.
