Civil War Author Appearing at Manassas Museum

June 25, 2017 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Provided by Savas Beatie

Author Tom Clemens will be presenting and signing copies of his Maryland Campaign series, including the newly released third and final volume, The Battle of Shepherdstown and the End of the Campaign.

When Robert E. Lee marched his Army of Northern Virginia into Maryland in early September 1862, Maj. Gen. George B. McClellan moved his reorganized and revitalized Army of the Potomac to meet him. The campaign included some of the bloodiest, most dramatic, and influential combat of the entire Civil War. Combined with Southern failures in the Western Theater, the fighting dashed the Confederacy’s best hope for independence, convinced President Abraham Lincoln to announce the Emancipation Proclamation, and left America with what is still its bloodiest day in history.
