I met Steve when he gave a talk on his book “Too Useful to Sacrifice: Reconsidering George B. McClellan’s Generalship in the Maryland Campaign from South Mountain to Antietam,” at the Central Maryland Heritage League prior to publication--it was fascinating to hear him explain his perspective on this topic in person! Steve argues persuasively against the popular theory that McClellan was an incompetent commander during the Maryland Campaign. Ordering my copy today!
Many historians say Maj. Gen. George B. McClellan’s perceived indecisiveness during the Maryland Campaign cost the Union Army an early opportunity to win the Civil War.
