Many of you might recognize the author of this book from his work at both Perryville and the Kentucky State Historical Society. Stuart Sanders has written a book on the aftermath of the Battle of Perryville, entitled Perryville Under Fire: The Aftermath of Kentucky's Largest Civil War Battle. Set for release later this month, this promises to be an interesting account of what happen to the wounded soldier left behind, and the impact of the battle upon Perryville's citizens. Mr. Sanders has written many articles about Perryville, including a favorite article of mine about the 3rd Ohio.
Perryville Under Fire will be a 160 page paperback and will retail for $19.95. One can preorder a copy via Amazon.
With the many acres of ground saved over the last ten years, Dr. Hafendorfer's and Dr. Noe's definitive accounts about the battle, and an increased interest of the Civil War due to the sesquicentennial, the Battle of Perryville seems to finally be taking its place of one of the most decisive points of the Civil War. This title confirms the growing interest in Perryville. Preorder your copy today!
