Scott C. Patchan, author of 'Shenandoah Summer: The 1864 Valley Campaign,' gives an in depth narrative of events in the Shenandoah Valley during the summer of 1864. Robert E, Lee directed Jubal Early to distract Union forces in the Valley to keep pressure off Lee's defending forces in Richmond and Petersburg.
Gerry's Monologue - "This is Gerry Prokopowicz, with Civil War Talk Radio,...
...if you know the Civil War, you already know about Sheridan's campaign in the Shenandoah Valley in the autumn of 1864. If you really know the Civil War, you know about Jubal Early's campaign, through the Valley and into Maryland, threatening Washington, D.C. earlier in the Summer of 1864. But only those who really, really know the War can tell you what happened in the Valley between those two campaigns, and one of those people is Scott C. Patchen, author of 'Shenandoah Summer, the 1864 Valley Campaign.' We will talk with him today on Civil War Talk Radio."
