Ronnie's book!
Reserve your copies now!

At long last the regimental history for Grandpa Bethea‘s Civil War unit is at the publisher’s and will be available soon. It is hard to believe that this weekend research project has taken 12 years to complete; but we are ready to take requests for the two volume set. The present size is over 800 total pages. Plans are to include a 100 page roster with each book.

I hope to have copies at the Skellie Reunion, at least final proofs.

For those of you interested in reserving a set, please let me know that you will commit to covering printing costs of $35.00 for the set. The final price will not be determined until after all photography, cover art, and layout are completed. We estimate the two volume set will sell for $50.00+ plus shipping.

We will be offering volume discounts and can have special printings for large group (Family) purchases. Donations to libraries and schools will also be considered.

Feel free to share this with other 7th Mississippi Connections and any message boards you use that cover the Civil War, Family history, and Mississippi.

Click buy now below and select the number of copies you want to reserve.

Include your mailing address and phone number in case we have questions. DO NOT SEND CASH, CHECKS, OR CREDIT CARD NUMBERS.
