The latest book in my series, “Civil War Personalities, 50 At A Time,” is entitled CIVIL WAR VIRGINIANS, and I hope to have it published and available by the end of the month of April.
Virginia was in many ways the pivotal state for the Civil War era. It did not secede at first, and in fact early in 1861 its representatives to a secession convention voted against secession. When Virginia officially left the Union, not all of its citizens went along.
My book covers a wide gamut of Virginia leaders on both sides of the Civil War, from Unionists like Winfield Scott and George Thomas to Confederate leaders Robert E. Lee and Edmund Ruffin.
Below is the cover of the book.
