New Releases for November 14: Colonels in Blue, Monty Python

Colonels in Blue—Indiana, Kentucky and Tennessee: A Civil War Biographical Dictionary by Roger D. Hunt

This biographical dictionary documents the Union army colonels who commanded regiments from Indiana, Kentucky and Tennessee. Entries are arranged first by state and then by regiment, and provide a biographical sketch of each colonel focusing on his Civil War service. Many of the colonels covered herein never rose above that rank, failing to win promotion to brigadier general or brevet brigadier general, and have therefore received very little scholarly attention prior to this work.
