Virginia at War, 1862 PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Virginia at War, 1862 free pdf Virginia emerged from the year 1861 in much the same state of uncertainty and confusion as the rest of the Confederacy. While the North was known to be rebuilding its army, no one could be sure if the northern people and government were willing to continue the war. Virginians' expectations for the coming year did not prepare them for what was about to happen, for in 1862 the war became earnest and real, and the Old Dominion became then and thereafter the major battleground of the war in the East. The landscape and the people of Virginia were a part of the battlefield, and as the contributors to "Virginia at War, 1862" attest, no individual and no aspect of life in the Commonwealth could escape the war's impact.
