The Battle of Charleston and the 1862 Kanawha Valley Campaign
It appears that Terry Lowry's serially delayed (it's original pub date was fall 2013!) book The Battle of Charleston and the 1862 Kanawha Valley Campaign (35th Star Pub) will finally be released next month. Hopefully, this is firm. Everyone has their favorite areas of interest, and one of mine is early war happenings in western Virginia. Lowry is the master of obscure West(ern) Virginia military topics done right, and this one is right in his wheelhouse. Almost entirely overshadowed by some skirmishing between Lee and McClellan in Maryland, the campaign has never had a full treatment before now, and I am confident Lowry will do it more than justice. It looks like the publisher is giving the project the red carpet treatment, too. I will certainly be looking to pick up a review copy right at release.
