An Account of the Peninsula Campaign

general george mcclellanI finished listening to a 16-hour audio book, Sword Over Richmond - An Eyewitness History of McClellan's Peninsula Campaign
by Richard Wheeler
. If I'd known it was so good, I would have read it before, but I was intimidated by the length.

Wheeler weaves together a variety of eyewitness accounts to tell a rich story of the Peninsula Campaign and Jackson's Valley Campaign in 1862. It's an interesting story told with suspense and a sense of excitement.
