General Lee's Immortals
The Battles And Campaigns Of The Branch Lane Brigade In The Army Of Northern Virginia, 1861-1865
- Civil War
Lee's Carolina hammer
The Branch-Lane Brigade served with Lee's Army of Northern Virginia through its entire existence, and the names emblazoned on its battle flag read like a history of that army. The brigade was renowned for hard-hitting attacks, disciplined defense, and superhuman marching abilities, but its constant position at the front resulted in devastating losses.
This first comprehensive history of this remarkable fighting command charts their war, from the Seven Day's Battles through the final roll call at Appomattox-including that infamous day at Chancellorsville when its members mistakenly shot Stonewall Jackson. Once finished, every reader will come to think he has met, marched with, fought beside, and bled with these brave North Carolinians.
