    A well researched, powerfully written account of a battle that should be better remembered. Some very poignant, memorable human stories reside within (including one about a brave soldier who was shot after refusing to take cover until the commanding officer took cover as well. It was then discovered that the soldier had been a woman in disguise).

Some very poignant, memorable human stories reside within (including one about a brave soldier who was shot after refusing to take cover until the commanding officer took cover as well. It was then discovered that the soldier had been a woman in disguise). A gorgeous quote that stayed with me long after I completed the book: The May 1964 expedition against the Virginia and Tennessee Railroad was a relatively insignificant excursion within a highly eventful war. It caused no momentous historial [sic] repercussion, and it contained no lofty maxims. Overshadowed by larger armies and more consequential campaigns, it failed to receive public recognition. Nevertheless, the courage and vivacity, the suffering and despair, of the Civil War soldier emerge as vividly from Cloyds Mountain and New River Bridge as from Gettysburg and Appomattox. Through the years, most of the men who marched, fought and died in this campaign have been forgotten. Now, only the mountains remember.
