Re: Query: Horses in the Civil War

From: Ginette Aley <ginette.m.aley@gmail.com>
Date: Tue, Aug 27, 2013 at 10:18 AM


Linda, J.L. Anderson and I have just published a book called Union
Heartland: The Midwestern Home Front during the Civil War
(Southern
Illinois University Press), and in it is an exhaustive look at the
agricultural dimensions of the war including a section on horses in an
essay by Doug Hurt. His references will help you as well.

All the best,
