Eric:

I grew up in Jackson, TN and attended college at UT/Knoxville. Many of my fraternity brothers were from Columbia and attended BGA. One of them remembered my interest in the Civil War, particularly the western theater, and pointed out your book.

Just excellent.

I have tried to follow the war of late through the history of one of my hometown units, the Sixth Tennessee, and have found little substance. However, early on the Sixth was consolidated with the Ninth (again, men from West Tennessee) and a professor at UT/Martin has written a history of the Ninth, which should mirror the Sixth to a large extent. The book is on order.

The Sixth/Ninth were part of Brown's division, just west of the pike, I believe. Any other sources you would advise?
