The Second Manassas Campaign was a military masterpiece in which Lee and the Army of Northern Virginia came as close as they ever would to exterminating their Federal opponents and ending the war. In so doing Lee confirmed himself as the South's pre-eminent military leader and helped forge his army into the formidable force it would remain for the rest of the war. This volume presents an account of the campaign, and includes discussion of the opposing commanders, the opposing plans, and the battlefield today.
