I hope that drunk bloke doesn't go mental...

Over at the Civil War Bookshelf there are extracts from a just plain bizarre interview with James McPherson.

This struck me as especially choice:

This is a volume in the series Gary Gallagher ... is editing for the University of North Carolina Press. [...] About a dozen books are scheduled for the series, on the both the military and nonmilitary aspects of the war. Since I had become interested in the naval war, especially when I edited the Lamson letters with my wife Patricia a few years ago, I asked Gary if I could do the naval volume in his series.


The whole thing is pretty rum to be honest.
