Freedom, Faults & Frustrations: The Story of Civil War on the Virginia Peninsula

Historians of the Civil War often overlook the events of the 1861-62 campaigns on the Virginia Peninsula and their tremendous impact on the war’s politics, strategies and length. The missteps and bungles of overconfident generals needlessly prolonged the war, and with each day that the conflict dragged on, more citizens got caught in the middle, more families were left fatherless and slaves hungry for freedom grew more desperate. Come walk the hallowed ground of half a dozen battlefields as local experts set the record straight on this turbulent time and study these critical campaigns from the perspectives of the soldiers and civilians who lived through and too often died in them.
