He specializes in American history before the Civil War. In 2007, the Center for Louisiana Studies at UL-Lafayette published his first book on a Louisiana topic, In the Habit of Acting Together: The Emergence of the Whig Party in Louisiana, 1828-1840. His second book was released this past spring, The Red River Campaign and Its Toll: 69 Bloody Days in Louisiana March-May 1864.
