Mingus scores another winner

My good friend Scott Mingus Sr. has recently released his latest volume of his “Human Interest Stories” series – this one is Volume 2 of Gettysburg Campaign vignettes.  I recently received a copy from Scott, and it’s as wonderful as the other volumes.  Each volume contains short vignettes of stories, factoids, trivia, and personal experiences all culled from primary sources.  The books are, incidentally, terrific sources in and of themselves, and Eric, Mike and I even used Mingus’ Volume 1 of Gettysburg stories in our recent book on the Gettysburg retreat.

Each volume is priced at only $9.95, well worth it for the enjoyment in each one.  As you read each story, you’ll find yourself alternately shaking your head, chuckling, and wanting to cry.

Click here to find Volume 1 of the Gettysburg series on Amazon (I couldn’t find Volume 2 there yet), or see Colecraft’s website.  You can also contact Scott directly by email at scottmingus@yahoo.com.

  1. Thanks, J.D., for the kind words and positive review! Work is beginning in collecting fresh stories for a planned Volume 3 to be published this time next year. There are a lot of untapped sources still out there!

  2. You’re welcome, Scott – very well deserved. I absolutely enjoyed reading it.

    I look forward to seeing the next volume.

    J.D.
