Books on Kershaw's Brigade

Books on Kershaw's Brigade

A major effort is being made to fully document the history of all seven units that comprise Joseph Kershaw's Brigade. By the early 21st Century it is hoped that a book will be written on each unit containing a lively narative history and detailed roster. In combination with D. Augustus Dickert's book, we believe that when these books are complete that Kershaw's Brigade will be the best documented brigade of either side. These books are based upon official records and the words of the participants. You can help complete our goal by sending copies of any photos or manuscripts of soldiers who fought in these units.
