NEW BOOK -- THE BATTLES OF STIRLING'S PLANTATION AND BAYOU BOURBEAU
The Army of Western Louisiana under command of Confederate General Richard Taylor, although vastly out-numbered, used Fabian tactics to smartly defeat the Federals at Stirling’s Plantation and at Bayou Bourbeau. They also aggressively skirmished with and harassed the invaders until they gave up and returned to their New Orleans base. There is also a chapter on the Rio Grande Expedition in Texas, which was a direct result of the failure of the campaign in South Louisiana.
The book, The Battles of Stirling’s Plantation and Bayou Bourbeau, 134 pages with photos, maps, index and bibliography, is available for $12.95 on Amazon.com and CreateSpace.com
