In the minds of many people, Virginia is the Civil War, it is the state most closely associated with Conferderate luminaries Lee, Jackson, Stuart, and Mosby and Union leaders Grant, Sheridan, Burnside, McClellan, and Pope. But when Virginia's general assembly voted the state out of the Union, citizens west of the Shenandoah Valley voted themselves out of Virginia, creating the Union state of West Virginia. Touring Virginia's and West Virginia's Civil War Sites covers all the significant sites in both states.
The 17 tours visit large and small battlefields, cemetaries, monuments and statues, rivers, and mountains, while sharing the histories behind each location, some surprising and obscure.
This latest edition includes updated directions, new photographs for each site, and several new sites--including the Museum of the Civil War Soldier in Petersburg, the American Center for the Civil War in Richmond, and the grave of the designer of the Confederate battle flag, William Porcher Miles, in Union, West Virginia.
