"Peculiarly distinguished among the advance guard, where all were distinguished, must be recorded . . . Private J. W. Brown, of Company F, First Georgia Regiment, who, upon hearing the order to fall back, exclaimed, 'I will give them one more shot before I leave,' and while ramming down his twenty-ninth cartridge fell dead at his post." - General Henry R. Jackson in his report of the Battle of Greenbrier River.

On The Road . . .

The next several days are going to be busy ones as I hit the road to promote “I Will Give Them One More Shot”.  Saturday and Sunday I will be in Dalton, Georgia, for the Chickamauga Civil War Show.  I’ll be at the Mercer University Press table and would enjoy visiting with anyone who would like to drop by.  Monday night I will be speaking to the Perry Historical Society, and Tuesday will be the Sons of Confederate Veterans camp in Americus.  In between I’ll be delivering signed books to the Georgia Archives in Morrow, the Atlanta History Center, the Georgia Capitol Museum and the University of Georgia, in thanks for their help during my research.  On my way down to Americus I’m going to try to sneak in a visit to Andersonville National Historic Site.  I’ll post pictures on this site once I return.
