I hope you will help me spread the news about this new small press dedicated to the preservation of Southern heritage and history. Thank you so much.
I am off to make a speech at the dedication of new gravestones for 8 Confederate soldiers, so if you post any questions, I will answer them when I get back.
May your new business be blessed and successful. Congratulations!
This is outstanding! I love small publishers!!!!

I would suggest beginning the project with a serious southern language and cultural reference set, as there were distinct regionalisms and even “localisms” that were then, and certainly are today, utterly alien outside their area.
One such informal guide, ‘Whistlin’ Dixie - A Dictionary of Southern Expressions’, by Robert Hendrickson, points this out in a glaring way to southerners. Either expressions are well known in your region of origin and family, or they are utterly alien. Just across a mountain, or state border, everything might change.
However, such a guide can pinpoint family origins and the origins of documents, with some degree of mapping.
I had the great good fortune to meet an American ethnolinguist, one of only a few left in the early 1960s, who, for a person over the age of 30, he could tell to within 50 miles their point of origin in the United States, solely by talking to them. It was that distinct back then, though rapidly destroyed by radio and television, which standardized speech to a great extent.
One can only imagine how distinct these differences must have been during the Civil War. And yet an English-descended Virginian could communicate with a French-descended Acadian in Louisiana, and a Scots Borderer Texan via Kentucky.
Hand in hand with linguistics would be a cultural guide, equally important to establish both place and time.
Putting thread info into my files, and wishing you well!
BUMP and bookmarked. I’m Freepmailing you a prospect.
Blessings on your new venture!
Do you have a facebook page?
We have a local bookseller here on Elliston Place in Nashville who carries a lot of Southern trade..including historical stuff
With Vandy nearby lefties loathe this store...as would some of our resident PC narrative freepers
My little brother bought this there for me
I do have a facebook page.
Best wishes and good luck with the new enterprise.
Elders Book Store.
I lived a couple of blocks down from Elders one year while I was in Nashville. Great memories of just milling around in there in my spare time.
In case I didn’t make it clear (and I might not have), the publishing company only publishes books about the Civil War.
I will look forward to it.
As an interesting aside, I've been doing some research on my great-great grandfather's regiment during the Civil War. The 16th Georgia Infantry Regiment was part of Cobb's (later Wofford's) Brigade, McLaw's Division, Longstreet's Corps, the Army of Northern Virginia. Records indicate that 1232 men served in the regiment over the course of the war, but 467 never made it home.
You betcha! Thanks much for your efforts, and, of course, Deo Vindice!
that is great, pleast keep me informed and if you have a FB then please send the details via private message obviously.
I know a couple of guys here in St Augustine who are very knowledgable and one has wrote his own book on General Loring.
Another guy looks to become the FL state top guy in the Sons of the confederate veterans.
Again thnak you for the ping and keep me updated please
