- Greetings All
I am interested in doing some reading on The Battle of Perryville Ky.
The 79th Pa. is the unit that I am most interested in finding more out, the
79th Pa. is my hometown unit.
So, what are the best books on Perryville? Also, are there any good
spots to see the field. BTW please let me know who you are by signing your

Masterson Brown a few years back. Only I was in wool and working a
gun but that got free lunch and admission to the Bearss and Brown
lectures. Well worth it. Thanks for changing the subject header.
If in Kentucky, add Camp Nelson to your visit list. Just south of
Nicholasville and about half-hour east of Perryville. Was the
largest logistics base in Kentucky during the war and was mostly a
farm field for the next 150 years. Officers quarters and
reconstructed redoubt with sometimes living history in the redoubt
with the 12th USCT manning the 12# Nap.
