I contacted the publisher about this mistake and they said that they would pass the information on to the author. However, I have never heard a word from the publisher again or from the author.
I was so livid with rage at this mistake that I did not bother with the rest of the book even though many of my ancestors were listed in it.
Save your money on this one. You can get the book through interlibrary loan if you just must see it, but please keep in mind it was done by a 27 year old who probably has very little interest in YOUR history.
Although much of the biographical information is suspect, the book is helpful as a research tool. Rather than going to each regiment and company roster to compile a list of Davidson County Civil War soldiers, they are already listed. Individual data can then be cross referenced with Civil War records, censuses, marriage records, cemetery surveys, etc.
Otherwise, I've found the book to be quite interesting.
