    One thought on “Kirby Smith's Confederacy: The TransMississippi South, 1863-1865”

    1. Detailed and fascinating account of what was, after Vicksburg, essentially a separate Confederacy and a separate war. Well worth a read for anyone interested in the Trans-Mississippi Theater.

    2. Holds up well as a study of the area during the Civil War. I would weight the coverage more away from the Red River campaign of 1864 but it really doesn't occupy a disproportionate amount of the book.
