Excellent reading for a book of its type. Mr. Davis moves the story along at a swift pace while providing just the right amount of detail.
Fredrick Danysh
Many would consider the Battle of New Market insignificant when compared to battles such as Gettysburg, Vicksburg, Atlanta, and Richmond. In this fight the students of the Virginia Military Institute marched out to join General John C. Breckinridge against a superior force to defend their community.
Of 258 students, some as young as 15, 57 were killed.
