Very good guide,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: A Little Short of Boats: The Civil War Battles of Ball's Bluff and Edwards Ferry, October 21 - 22, 1861 (Hardcover)
I read this book just before participating in the 150th anniversary reenactment. I knew little of the battle, but knew the reenactment was taking place on the orginal battlefield. The book is well written and very detailed. When I was on the battlefield, I knew all the key areas involved and the main actors and regiments. I recommend this book to anyone interested in how a simple plan, poorly executed, can lead to diaster.
