From the back cover: "...guide to all the major Civil War sites in Virginia, ...filled with fascinating and little-known facts...the only comprehensive guide to Civil War sites in Virginia where 26 major battles and more than 400 smaller engagements took place."
From the preface:..The state was among the last to join the Southern experiment in independence. Virginia had to endure being the major battleground of the bloodiest war in American history; its capital became the primary target of Union might. Cities were ravaged, lands laid to waste, factories and homes destroyed, tens of thousands of its citizens killed, a third of its territory was lost."
