New Book by a Former Colleague
Joe Mobley, formerly of the NC Department of Cultural Resources, has a new book out titled Weary of War. He is also the author of a number of other Civil War books relating to North Carolina, including one about James City (a freedmen's settlement near New Bern) and a biography of the state's war governor Zebulon B. Vance. During his time with the Department he served as Editor of the Vance papers. I'm glad to see he is still active in the academic community.
