Discover the Battle of Second Manassas in this captivating book on what transpired from August 28th to August 30th, 1862, near the Bull Run River in northeastern Virginia.

The Battle of Second Manassas was part of the northern Virginia campaign under Confederate General Robert E. Lee's leadership and unfolded during the summer of the second year of the American Civil War. The battle played out on the same ground as the Battle of First Manassas, which took place almost a year before, and both engagements revealed startling similarities, including Confederate victories.

As at the Battle of First Manassas, the Northerners' superior numbers and reinforcements should have ensured a quick and easy victory. However, the newly appointed General Lee and his freshly formed army, along with his leading legendary generals-"Stonewall" Jackson, "Jeb" Stuart, and "Old Pete" Longstreet-made quick work of their enemies. After the considerable blunders of the Northern units during the battle, Union careers leaders were summarily demoted or transferred. Political infighting and poor tactical decisions rendered the Yankees weak and underprepared.

As at First Manassas, the Yankees skedaddled their way back to Washington and out of southern Virginia. The loss of the Battle of Second Manassas, also known as the Second Battle of Bull Run in the North, opened the way for the Confederacy to infiltrate Yankee territory and possibly garner international support for their cause. But would they succeed?

In this book, you will learn:
  • The events that led to the Battle of Second Manassas
  • Who the key players were for the North and South and what became of them
  • The tactical errors that forced a Northern loss at Second Manassas
  • How the battle was pivotal for the northern Virginia campaign
  • The attitudes behind some of the Civil War's most brutal fighting
  • Why the events of that time did not ultimately lead to a Southern victory in the war
