Battle of White Sulphur Springs
The History Press has released a new title, "The Battle of White Sulphur Springs: Averell Fails to Secure West Virginia" by Eric J. Wittenberg.
In August 1863, Union general William Woods Averell led a 600-mile raid culminating in the Battle of White Sulphur Springs in Greenbrier County. Col. George S. Patton, grandfather of the legendary World War II general, met Averell with a dedicated Confederate force. After a fierce two-day battle, Patton defeated Averell, forcing him to retreat.
In his book, Civil War historian Eric J. Wittenberg presents an in-depth analysis of the important battle.
Wittenberg has written more than 15 published books on the Civil War.
The 193-page paperback is $21.99.
