U of Cincinnati history prof and Roosevelt alumnus Mark A. Lause has new book on Civil War published

Professor Mark A. Lause (MA, ’77) of University of Cincinnati has just published his latest book, Price’s Lost Campaign: The 1864 Invasion of Missouri with University of Missouri Press. The book details Price’s Raid, the campaign led by General Sterling Price, that the Confederates undertook during the final months of the American Civil War.

According to Lause’s publishers, “In showing how both sides during Price’s Raid used self-serving fictions to provide a rationale for their politically motivated brutality and were unwilling to risk defeat, Lause reveals the underlying nature of the American Civil War as a modern war.”

Price’s Lost Campaign is now available in bookstores and online sellers.
