A NEW BOOK
The Fifth Illinois soldiers "Prairie Boys Go To War"
by: Rhonda M. Kohl
It is with great pleasure that I've gotten to correspond with book author Rhonda M. Kohl. About two years ago she had called the Christian Co. Historical Society asking if we might have a photo of William Skiles, (a Taylorville, IL. native in which the Society had published, a now out of print book titled "Letters to Home"), so that she could use the photo in her new book "Prairie Boys Go To War". I looked, and yes we did which I copied and sent to her.
Rhonda informed me a couple of weeks ago that her book "Prairie Boys Go To War" had been printed and was available for sale on these sites:
About the Fifth Illinois Cavalry between the years 1861 to September 1865.
Rhonda offers the only modern, comprehensive analysis of a southern Illinois regiment during the Civil War.
There is also a 'Roster' listing available (click on Roster) for viewing.
Rhonda M. Kohl is also on Facebook and has a Facebook page for her book:
The Prairie Boys Go to War: The Fifth Illinois Cavalry, 1861-1865
