A book of this digital regimental is in the works and should be available in paperback at Amazon before the end of the year. It will have some additional material but for the most part be a recapitulation of what’s here on the Web.
The tentative title is The Bloody Thirteenth, which is not very original, i.e. the bloody part. It has been used by other authors writing about other regiments. But it was the appellation given the regiment by its survivors, according to one man’s memoir, so it’s historically appropriate.
I’ll keep the price of the book as low as possible, figuring that most people who’ll be interested in it will be descendants of the men who served in the 13th Mississippi Infantry Regiment, and I want to do them a favor, not try to pay my bills off their interest in their heritage.
One advantage of the book form is that while it will be the regiment’s history as related here on the site it will be from start to finish instead of finish to start as is the format of a blog. Much easier to read in the usual way. If I could figure out how to turn the posts here around so they began with the regiment’s muster in 1861 first, instead of the surrender at Appomattox, I’d do it. If any reader knows how, I’d appreciate the advice.
