For three years of war the Union and the Confederacy had battled over the
picturesque Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. Nestled between the Blue Ridge
Mountains to the east and the Ridge-and-Valley Appalachians to the west, the
valley served as the granary for the Army of Northern Virginia. It provided
bread and beef to feed this shield of the Confederacy and remounts for its
cavalry. This beautifully illustrated study explores one of the major
campaigns of the Civil War in 1864, which saw a decisive victory for the
Union forces under Sheridan and featured some of the most famous commanders
of the war, including Philip Sheridan, Jubal Early, George Armstrong Custer,
John B. Gordon and George Crook.
