Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“The quotations included are very vivid.”
—David Laskin, author of Braving the Elements: The Stormy History of American Weather

“Students of the Civil War will find the book an extremely useful reference work. The tables and additional commentary from widely scattered sources offer indispensable information for anyone interested in military campaigns in Virginia. To have all of this information for the entire war readily available in one place is the single most significant contribution of this work.”
—George C. Rable, President, Society of Civil War Historians

“[Krick is] the greatest secret weapon for Civil War battlefield preservation we’ve ever had.”
—Former New York Representative Robert J. Mrazek
