For 140 years the crucial role that Southwest Virginia played in the greatest American conflict (the Civil War) has been overlooked. Now you can have a book that accurately details the importance of this section. The United States was a foreign country, and the Confederacy fought for its life. The fight would have been very short without Southwest Virginia.

You'll ride with some of the Union's best troops under the generalship of the excellent Stoneman, the determined Crook, and the inept Burbridge as they try to stop the salt and lead flowing over the all important New River Railroad Bridge to General Lee.

You'll join the Dixie boys in the trenches and brave overwhelming odds. Generals Breckinridge, Jackson, the "Devil" Morgan and their men (perhaps your ancestors) gave it their all as they tried to push the invaders back again and again!

Gary Walker, a Wytheville native who now lives in Roanoke, dedicated over seven years to researching and writing the book. He used over 100 sources. This book is detailed with 362 footnotes, 7 maps, and 85 pictures (some never before published re-enactment photos). This handsome edition has a colorful, eye-catching dust cover.
