Dear Civil War Buffs,

I have been busy the last week, speaking with authors of new books on the Civil War.  Last Friday, July 3, I had the opportunity to interview author, James A. Hessler, about his new book, "Sickles at Gettysburg."  This is a terrific, balanced book about the very controversial Civil War General, Daniel E. Sickles.  I encourage you to check out the review, and the interview.  The interview was quite special, as I conducted it at the Trostle Farm, the site of Sickles' III Corps headquarters at Gettysburg.

Follow this link to check out the article:

Let me know what you think!

Best Regards,
Mike Noirot

Mike,
Very interesting interview. I read CSA Gen. Porter Alexander's "Fighting for the Confederacy" a few months ago. He has a lot of critical comments on generals of both sides but he credits Sickels actions with significantly contributing to the union victory at Gettysburg.
