The information is divided into four parts: 1) The Battle Book Online, 2) Main Section of The Battle Book Updated, 3) Complete “The Battle Book Updated” with 3 updated genealogy tables, and 43) Pictures for the 3 updated genealogy tables..  To download the book without the genealogy tables, click on the picture of James Smith Battle.
