Ansil Gilliam - 7th Ky Inf USA

I am looking for books which may describe the history of the 7th Kentucky Infantry, USA. In particular, i am looking for information regarding Company H and Cpl. Ansil (Ansel) Gilliam.

I have the service records of this soldier found at FOLD3 and the histories found at Wikipedia, NPS, &c by Googling the internet . Only one book was found, titled, "The Kentucky brave: A study of the activities of the 12th Tennessee Infantry, 22nd Tennessee Infantry, 3rd Kentucky Infantry and 7th Kentucky Infantry, 1861-1862" by Frank R. Carvell. Unfortunately, its out of print and not available at the websites I use to locate books.

Ansil was 19 when he enlisted in 1861. He was discharged at Baton Rouge on May 11, 1864 on account of consumption. He died May 25, 1864 only a few days after arriving back home in knox County, Ky. His grave has a veterans headstone.
