Editorial Reviews

When Virginia left the Union in April 1861, Northern and Southern leaders alike recognized the Peninsula as an extremely strategic location. It was one of the major approaches to the Confederate capital at Richmond. The bountiful yet strategic waterways, fertile farm fields and quiet little towns along this path to Richmond would immediately become the scene of some of the Civil War's greatest events.

Soon after Virginia's secession, Brigadier General Benjamin F. Butler took command of Fort Monroe. This moat-encircled masonry bastion was the only fort in the Upper South not to fall into Confederate hands when the war erupted. Virtually overnight, Fort Monroe became a major base for Army and Federal Fleet operations. Perhaps more important than Butler's quick ability to station troops at Newport News Point to block Confederate use of the James River, was his decision to consider slaves escaping into Union lines as "Contrabands of War." It became one of the first steps toward making the Civil War a war to end slavery.
