Glory enough for all :
Sheridan's second raid and the Battle of Trevilian Station /
Eric J. Wittenberg ; foreword by Gordon C. Rhea.
|Main Creator:||Wittenberg, Eric J., 1961-|
"Glory Enough for All chronicles the battle that resulted when Confederate cavalry pursued and caught their Federal foes at Trevilian Station, Virginia." "Eric J. Wittenberg tells the stories of the men who fought there, including eight Medal of Honor winners and one Confederate whose death at Trevilian Station made him the third of three brothers to die in the service of Company A of the 4th Virginia Cavalry. It also addresses the little-known but critical cavalry battle at Samaria Church on June 24, 1864, where Union Brig. Gen. David M. Gregg's division was nearly destroyed."
"This strategic analysis of the battle challenges prevailing interpretations of General Sheridan and of the Union cavalry. Wittenberg shows that the outcome of Trevilian Station ultimately prolonged Grant's efforts to end the Civil War."--Jacket.
