WELCOME TO THE LOS ANGELES CIVIL WAR ROUND TABLE
THE LOS ANGELES CIVIL WAR ROUND TABLE CORDIALLY INVITES YOU TO OUR NEXT MEETING, ON TUESDAY, December 18th AT 7:00 PM
When General Robert E. Lee wanted to relieve pressure on the line at Petersburg, in July 1864, who did he dispatch, from the Shenandoah Valley, to invade the North? What result did Lee expect from a foray, which Jubal Early, one of Lee’s most reliable subordinates, and others in his Army of the Valley, felt was becoming too familiar? Were they simply crossing the Potomac, marching through Western Maryland, and into Pennsylvania’s Cumberland Valley, to another defeat? What factors hindered the Rebel Army, and limited the scale of this invasion? Why was it simply known as Jubal Early’s 1864 Raid? Were there notable outcomes of this campaign? Was it an adequate combat test for the Washington fort system; or, was it best known for giving President Lincoln his first eyewitness view of a Civil War battle in progress?
