Three Days in the Shenandoah


“Three Days in the Shenandoah – Stonewall Jackson at Front Royal and Winchester” by Gary Ecelbarger

From the cover: Stonewall Jackson swept away an isolated Union division and made his presence so frightful a prospect at the  battles of Front Royal and Winchester that it triggered an overreaction from President Lincoln, yielding huge benefits for the Confederacy. Bypassing long-overused sources that have shrouded the Valley Campaign in myth, Ecelbarger draws instead on newly uncovered primary sources to refute much of the anecdotal lore that was regarded as fact. He offers new conclusions regarding Lincoln’s military meddling as commander-in-chief, grants Jefferson Davis more credit for the campaign than previous accounts have given him, and commends Union soldiers for their fighting. 273 pages
