We are proud to announce a new publication from the Louisville Civil War Round Table: An up to date
bibliography of the 150 best books on Kentucky’s participation in the Civil War. “Kentucky in the Civil War:
150 for the 150th” is the product of over a year’s research and work by several members of a specially
formed committee dedicated to producing this book. Each listing is annotated for a better understanding of
content. The book covers several categories of subject matter and also contains a list of reference material,
bibliographies and fiction.
We hope this will be a valuable guide for anyone interested in Civil War Kentucky and that every member will purchase a copy for themselves or as a gift, as this is an important fundraiser for your Round Table. We also recommend telling your friends.
The book is a limited edition soft cover of 48 pages and retails for $12.50 plus $2.50 shipping. (LCWRT can purchase the book for $7.50 plus $2.50 shipping).
Anyone having suggestions for additions to the list please email full bibliographic information to : firstname.lastname@example.org.
For information or to order copies please call Norvelle Wathen at 502-339-9000.
