Civil War Author Appearing Before the Maryland Military Historical Society
September 21 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Author Tom Clemens will be presenting and signing copies of his series of books, The Maryland Campaign of September 1862, Volumes 1-3.
When Robert E. Lee marched his Army of Northern Virginia into Maryland in early September 1862, Maj. Gen. George B. McClellan moved his reorganized and revitalized Army of the Potomac to meet him. The campaign included some of the bloodiest, most dramatic, and influential combat of the entire Civil War. Combined with Southern failures in the Western Theater, the fighting dashed the Confederacy’s best hope for independence, convinced President Abraham Lincoln to announce the Emancipation Proclamation, and left America with what is still its bloodiest day in history.
