THE HISTORY PRESS CIVIL WAR SESQUICENTENNIAL SERIES
By John David Hoptak
With this series of concise books by Civil War scholars, The History Press honors the 150th Anniversary of the war between the States.
In September 1862, Robert E. Lee led the Army of Northern Virginia north of the Potomac River as part of his Northern invasion, seeking a quick end to the war. Author of this book and historian John Hoptak writes here on critical Battle of South Mountain, long overshadowed by the Battle of Antietam.
