The result is a highly readable book that takes the reader on horseback through several of the major battles in the eastern theater of the Civil War. The reader not only sees the word on the page of the book, but they also feel the pain and glory, smell the stenches, and hear the booms of gun and artillery in this accessible narrative.The text is sprinkled with never before published images. Detailed appendices include annotated rosters for each cavalry company. Going Back The Way They Came is solid Civil War scholarship, and a narrative that is hard to put down.
