My colleague Frank Simione and I will be publishing our book, “Searching for Irvin McDowell, Forgotten Civil War General,” in early August. This is the first biography of this ill-fated Union General, who commanded the largest U.S. army to that point in history at the First Battle of Bull Run, the 160th anniversary of which we have just commemorated.

More information to follow, but here is the planned book cover.
