The Maryland Campaign – Edited by Thomas G. Clemens

After 100 plus years, the first full length analysis of Ezra Carman’s 1,800 page history of the Maryland Campaign will be released. Published by my friends at Savas Beatie, LLC, it will inevitably become the most authoritative work on the campaign. Edited by Thomas G. Clemens, it will be released in two volumes. I have just started to review the galley of the first volume, “The Maryland Campaign of 1862: Vol. 1: South Mountain.” Watch for a review in the near future.

Additionally, I have started an analysis on the controversy of the capture of G.W.C. “Custis” Lee at Sailors Creek. While the Federal forces swept up thousands of Confederate prisoners two separate regiments claimed to have captured the major general: the 121st New York Volunteers and the 37th Massachusetts Volunteers. I will try to uncover the truth in my less than scientific analysis. Stay posted!

About Michael Noirot

I grew up in the Central Illinois farming community, of Dunlap. Growing up, I played sports, tinkered with cars and enjoyed photography. While I did well in school, I did not become passionate about history until my early 30's. I have built a large library, of books on early America, politics and the Civil War. I am an avid reader. Fortunately, I have had plenty of opportunities to travel, over the years, and have been to most of the Civil War battlefields. I work while I travel, so more often than not, I am up, in the middle of the night, to get sunrise pictures, or I will be out until well after dark, exploring Civil War battlefields. I have other hobbies, and passions, that I really enjoy. Number one on the list would be guitar. I play my guitars on a regular basis, and enjoy the Bluegrass, and Contemporary Christian (CCM) genres. I play a style of guitar, called FLATPICKING, where using a flat pick, you play lead solos, similar to the way a fiddle would have been played during the 19th and early 20th Centuries. Laura, my wife, and I also enjoy scuba diving, travel and spending time at our property, in the country. Lastly, we spend as much time with our families, as possible. Thanks for stopping by.
