Overview

First Campaign: A Guide to Civil War in the Mountains of West Virginia 1861 by Hunter Lesser

West Virginia was the setting for the First Campaign of America's Civil War. Here brothers clashed in combat amid the rugged mountains of "Western" Virginia in 1861. The First Campaign became a proving ground for soldiers and civilians who would shape American history.

In these mountains, a Union army lead by George McClellan battled Confederates directed by Robert E. Lee. McClellan rocketed to stardom here while Lee left the mountains in defeat. Meanwhile, daring Unionists forged a new Virginia government. With President Lincoln's aid, the new state of West Virginia was born.

This guidebook offers three one-day driving tours filled with spellbinding scenery and adventure. Easy to follow directions, narratives and "fun facts" are your ticket to a delightful journey through these "enchanted" mountains.
