BloodyAutumnReleasedBloody Autumn: The Shenandoah Campaign of 1864 by Daniel T. Davis and Phillip S. Greenwalt, the latest title in the Emerging Civil War Series, is now available.

To launch the book, Dan and Phill will be conducting a book signing on Saturday, January 25 from 1:00-3:00 p.m. at the Winchester Book Gallery, 185 North Loudon Street, Winchester, VA.

Bloody Autumn traces the misfortunes of the Confederate Seconds Corps, commanded by Lt. Gen. Jubal Early, during the early fall of 1864, as they tried to secure the Valley, known then as “the breadbasket of the Confederacy.” Federal commander Maj. Gen. Phil Sheridan, tasked with clearing the Valley once and for all, rose to national prominence as he undertook his assignment with gusto.

Along with a narrative of events, Bloody Autumn features driving tours of Third Winchester, Fisher’s Hill and Tom’s Brook, and Cedar Creek. The book also includes an introduction by Scott C. Patchan, author of The Last Battle of Winchester, maps by cartographer Hal Jespersen, and appendices on “Preservation in the Valley” by NPS Historian Eric Campbell and “The Campaign for Memory” by ECW’s Chris Mackowski.
