Farming on the site of the Battle of Cross Keys.


Battlefield-Farming a Civil War Battleground:
"This compelling memoir is by turns charming and chilling as the artist-author restores a forty-acre farm field and builds a house in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley...Fascinating." James M. McPherson

"Vivid...The chapters of warfare and farm work ultimately knit together; the reader's understanding of the forty acres makes the battle more comprehensible and and more terrible, and the battle's horrors render the current peaceful state of the land more precious." The New Yorker
