Arguing that an unenthusiastic Union public, and particularly a politically weakened Lincoln, were vulnerable to a morale crushing Southern victory in the later years of the Civil War, Bernstein, an independent scholar, examines Confederate general Jubal Early's march on Washington and the reasons for its ultimate failure. The work presents a discussion of social, political and economic circumstances as well as a detailed war narrative of the movement of troops and decisions of generals. Several black and white photographs and maps are included.
