Few historians have examined what happened to the Army of Northern Virginia and the Army of the Potomac during the critical months following Gettysburg, when both armies assumed the offensive in a pair of fascinating campaigns of thrust and counter-thrust. This careful study breaks down these campaigns (and all related operational maneuvers) into 13 map sets or “action-sections” enriched with 87 original full-page color maps. These spectacular cartographic creations
bore down to the regimental and battery level.
Rob Orrison, Park Manager, Bristoe Station Battlefield Heritage Park stated: “Bradley Gottfried fills a crucial gap in our understanding of what transpired in Virginia after the battle of Gettysburg and before the Overland Campaign. His detailed and easy-to-read maps, coupled with his incisive narrative, allow readers to comprehend and fully appreciate the complicated, important, and largely overlooked Bristoe Station and Mine Run campaigns.”
Dr. Bradley M. Gottfried holds a Ph.D. in Zoology from Miami University. He has worked in higher education for more than three decades as a faculty member and administrator. He is currently President of the College of Southern Maryland.
An avid Civil War historian, Dr. Gottfried is the author of nine books, including: The Battle of Gettysburg: A Guided Tour (1998); Stopping Pickett: The History of the Philadelphia Brigade (1999); Brigades of Gettysburg (2002); Roads to Gettysburg (2002); and Kearny’ s Own: The History of the First New Jersey Brigade (2005). He is currently working with Theodore P. Savas on a Gettysburg Campaign Encyclopedia.
