The Union's major problems are division of responsibility and the refusal to treat The Shenandoah Valley as a major theater. During the retreat from Washington, questions of responsibility, misunderstandings and poor Union leadership allow Early's small army to reach safety. Early exploits the lack of communication, district boundaries and lost opportunities in making his escape, even as he is bested in battle. When the chance to counter attack comes, misunderstandings and mistakes cause a major Union defeat. Cool Springs, Rutherford's Farm, Second Kernstown and Moorefield are not recognizable battles for most of us. The burning of Chambersburg is the event that most readers will recognize but many will be surprise at when this occurred.
The story is well organized. While simultaneous events are read separately, we have no problem understanding their relationship.Read more ›
