Skirmish at Pearisburg

Price: $20.00

By the spring of 1862, Union forces controlled almost all of what was to become the state of West Virginia. One of the most remarkable regiments (23rd Ohio Volunteer Infantry) of the Civil War that included two future presidents would move south and occupy the village of Pearisburg, Virginia. This placed the Federals with 20 miles of a vital southern rail link. Author George A. McLean, Jr.'s well researched work describes in detail the fight that followed. The Battle of Pearisburg was small by Civil War standards, however, it reflected much of what was happening in the larger war. Photographs, maps, illustration, index. 153 pp. (2012)
