Gen. John Pope’s military at Manassas. Carman concludes with an government precis of the whole campaign.

The Maryland crusade of September 1862, Vol. III: The conflict of Shepherdstown and the tip of the crusade, concludes the main complete and unique account of the crusade ever produced. Jammed with firsthand debts, own anecdotes, certain footnotes, maps, and pictures, this long-awaited examine might be liked as Civil struggle background at its finest.
