Confederate general Robert Patterson’s “Narrative of the Campaign in the Valley of the Shenandoah” is a rare, Civil War-era history of the important battles and events that shaped the outcome of the Civil War in Virginia. Patterson collected and edited countless letters which he provides to give context to his decisions throughout the Shenandoah campaign. According to Larned,

“This is General Patterson’s vindication of himself in his conduct of operations collateral to the Bull Run battle, for which he was much criticized. A question of responsibility between him and General Scott was involved.

 

Eicher furthers this,

“Patterson strikes back in the pages of this work. He outlines the supposed misunderstanding between him and Winfield Scott over responsibility for Patterson’s actions.

 

In addition to Patterson’s experiences at the first Bull Run, this book offers insight into Bunker Hill, capture of Harper’s Ferry, and much more! Worth noting, this example features the handwritten signature of Patterson on the half title!
