Review: Louisianians in the Western Confederacy: The Adams-Gibson Brigade in the Civil War

User Review  - Sean Chick - Goodreads

A solid if uneven work in terms of prose. The wealth of photographs and maps is a plus. Much of this book is about Randall Gibson, and the 13th Louisiana in particular receives a lot of coverage. Read full review
