A Strong and Sudden Onslaught: The Cavalry Action at Hanover, Pennsylvania is a wonderful book, full of well researched accounts that have rarely or never been used in any previous studies of the June 30, 1863, battle. In addition to the damage claims, Krepps makes extensive use of Hanover-area accounts, including newspapers, letters, diaries, and other accounts from local eyewitnesses. He has also scoured hundreds of soldier's accounts and digested them in a fast-paced narrative that breaks new ground.
In particular, Krepps takes a fresh look at primary accounts that strongly suggest that there was much more fighting in along the road between Littlestown and Hanover than previously believed or documented in the most common secondary accounts of the battles. He has perhaps the most detailed account ever written of the actual fighting in and around Hanover itself, and skillfully weaves in civilian and military accounts to paint as complete a picture of the confused battle as can be done, given the scarcity of contemporary Southern reports and accounts.Read more ›
Although not a historian my reading of this battle's impact is it may have won the war for the Union. The fact is clear that this battle removed the Rebel calvary from Gettysburg, not having calvary- scouts- at Gettysburg had a huge influence on the outcome of the most decisive battle of the war.
