The Battle Of Piedmont And Hunters Raid On Staunton: The 1864 Shenandoah Campaign By Scott C. Patchan

    Scott updates his Final Fury book. More information, with good maps and a terrific sense of the ground. Well written and paced. Good writing and editing. Scott C. Patchan The strength of this book is that Patchan takes what is, for the most part, a little-known Civil War battle and gives it a thorough and exciting treatment. The epilogue/analysis was excellent, and it had good battle maps (often supplemented with modern-day photos of the field). My only quibble was that it could have used a modern map of the theater of operations; the one in the book was very old and Piedmont was a little difficult to find for someone who is not familiar with that section of the Shenandoah Valley.

    The Battle of Piedmont has long been considered a small battle with massive consequences. A must-have for Shenandoah Valley and Civil War enthusiasts.

    In 1864, General Grant tasked General David Hunter with raiding the breadbasket of the Shenandoah Valley and destroying the Confederate factories and supply lines. General Lee dispatched General William E. Grumble Jones, and the forces collided up the fertile fields of eastern Augusta County. It was a bloody day--the Battle of Piedmont saw more men killed and wounded than in any of Stonewall Jackson's 1862 Valley encounters. Sweeping on to victory, Federal forces then occupied Staunton and laid waste to the railroad and Confederate workshops.
