American History Book Club

The American History Book Club will discuss The First Battle of Manassas: An End to Innocence, July 18-21, 1861 by John Hennessy (Stackpole, $19.95). On July 21, 1861, near a Virginia railroad junction twenty-five miles from Washington, D.C., the Union and Confederate armies clashed in the first major battle of the Civil War. Hennessy's classic is the premier tactical account of First Manassas/Bull Run. It combines narrative, analysis, and interpretation into a clear, easy-to-follow account of the battle's unfolding. It features commanders who would later become legendary, such as William T. Sherman and Thomas J. Jackson, who earned his "Stonewall" nickname at First Manassas.
