About a month after the Battle of Antietam, Union forces under General George McClellan crossed the Potomac River in pursuit of General Robert E. Lee and the Army of Northern Virginia. Author Kevin Pawlak talked about the Loudoun Valley Campaign, a series of skirmishes starting at the end of October 1862 between Confederate forces under J.E.B. Stuart and various units of the Union Army of the Potomac. On November 5, President Abraham Lincoln ordered McClellan’s removal from command. This talk was part of a symposium on “The War in the East” hosted by the “Emerging Civil War” blog. close
