Journal of a graduate student in military history and the American Civil War

Lincoln and His Admirals

with 3 comments

I’m very pleased to have received a review copy yesterday of Lincoln and His Admirals by Craig L. Symonds from the terrific folks over at Oxford University Press. You can view the book’s listing at OUP here. Being a student of both the American Civil War AND maritime history, I can’t think of a better read. I’m reserving this one for the Christmas holiday. This will also be my first introduction to the work of Craig L. Symonds. More to come on my review.

  1. Rene,

    I will be curious to hear what Craig has to say about the relationship between Lincoln and John A. Dahlgren. Please let me know your thoughts. Thanks.
