In A Free Live Video Presentation

Contrary to popular belief, the Eastern Theater during the late summer and fall of 1863 was anything but inconsequential. Generals George Meade and Robert E. Lee continued where they had left off, boldly maneuvering the chess pieces of war to gain a decisive strategic and tactical advantage. Cavalry actions and pitched battles made it clear to anyone paying attention that the war in Virginia was a long way from having been decided at Gettysburg. This period of the war was the first and only time Meade exercised control of the Army of the Potomac on his own terms, but historians and students alike have all but ignored it. Jeffrey Wm Hunt brilliantly rectifies this oversight in the third installment of his award-winning Meade and Lee series, Meade and Lee at Rappahannock Station: The Army of the Potomac’s First Post-Gettysburg Offensive, from Kelly’s Ford to the Rapidan, October 21 to November 20, 1863.

I have found all of the presentations by Savas Beatie authors to be highly informative and I look forward to this one.

I was recently browsing the Savas Beatie website and I saw that a book entitled Books on The American Civil War - A Critical Bibliography by Walter Westcote, Daniel Welch, and Theodore Savas is scheduled to be released soon. I can't speak for other CWT members, but I often find myself spending an inordinate amount of time on websites such as Amazon trying to find just the right book on a particular Civil War topic I am interested in learning about. I would think that a book such as this would serve as an invaluable resource in helping readers pinpoint the book(s) they are looking for.

I throw this out because I think this book might be an interesting subject for a future presentation on CWT.
