    One thought on “The Battle of New Market

    1. Sarah Bierle on said:

      Well written historical account of the Battle of New Market 1864 I appreciated how the book delved into background on the commanders, explained the topography, and highlighted the bravery of many units Certainly the Virginia Military Institute cadets deserve recognition and glory, but the book reminds us that there were other units fighting at this battle too Local civilians and aftermath are briefly mentioned.Highly recommended as a basic book for understanding the whole battle.

    2. Fredrick Danysh on said:

      Many would consider the Battle of New Market insignificant when compared to battles such as Gettysburg, Vicksburg, Atlanta, and Richmond In this fight the students of the Virginia Military Institute marched out to join General John C Breckinridge against a superior force to defend their community.Of 258 students, some as young as 15, 57 were killed.

    3. Ken Mccoy on said:

      Excellent reading for a book of its type Mr Davis moves the story along at a swift pace while providing just the right amount of detail.

    4. Roger Taylor on said:

      Good concise book on the Battle of New Market Included lots of little human interest factoids Would have like a few maps.
