Zack Waters and The Florida Brigade

Often, when studying a battle, I pick up a unit history to see if the author can help me understand what took place.  Zack Waters' book on the Florida Brigade of the Huger-Anderson-Mahone Division of the Army of Northern Virginia, A Small But Spartan Band, surpassed all my expectations when I bought it to see what information it could provide about the events of late June 1864.  The book draws upon original sources from not only Florida soldiers bur from other troops belonging to the division.  I intend to write more about this book, which I plan to read from cover to cover.
