Hardscrabble Historian works to get the facts right

NJ.com has an article on William Styple a Civil War Historian and author from Kearny, NJ. Styple as the author describes is a hardscrabble historian who prides himself on being accurate is not a fan of popular historians like Doris Kearns Goodwin who don’t spend the time to get the facts right. I think Styple has done a good job bringing some previously unpublished sources to light. One of my favorites is Our Noble Blood, The Civil War Letters of Major-General Regis de Trobriand. Belle Grove Publishing (Kearny, NJ 1997)
