In Memory

I would be remiss at this time if I didnt note the passing of Historian Dr. Arthur "Art" W. Bergeron. Art passed away on Feb 8th after a hard battle with cancer. Although I had never met Art in person he had been of great assistance to me over the years. Art will be best known for his Guide to Louisiana Confederate Military Units, 1861-1865. Art, along with Lawrence Hewitt was working on a new essay series for the University of Tennessee Press, Confederate Generals in the Western Theater, the first two volumes of this series are set for release this spring. Art was of great help to anyone who contacted him and he will be greatly missed.

So to hear about this. Art, is this the same author of Tennesseans and their History?
