Culminating in a stalwart defensive fight by Thomas Stonewall Jacksons Virginia Brigade, this is the story of the Confederacys first victory. The author investigates the personalities of the principal commanders and examines the opposing armies, showing how the widely varying uniforms of different units caused mistakes of identity which affected the battle at crucial points. Weapons, intelligence and the almost universal inexperience of troops on both sides are all discussed, helping to explain the events of the battle itself.
