Re: which books have the best accounts of Yellow B
"Civil War Regiments" Savas Publishing Vol. 2 NO.3 "Chasing Banks Out of Louisiana: Parson's Texas Cavalry in the Red River Campaign" by Anne J. Bailey. This publication is out of stock at Savas, but you might be able to find it in a local university library. This article has an good section on Yellow Bayou, including three maps of the battle.
