The Battle of Brandy StationI got my copies of my new book, The Battle of Brandy Station: North America’s Largest Cavalry Battle today, and I have to say that I think that my publisher, The History Press did an excellent job with the book. It’s a handsome volume, and they did everything that I asked them to do.

I owe a debt of gratitude to Clark B. “Bud” Hall, who is my mentor for all things Brandy Station. What I know about the battle, I know because of Bud Hall. Bud’s lifetime of research and intimate knowledge of every bump and every corner of the battlefield has been the source of much of what I know. His research also provided the basis for the excellent maps by master cartographer Steve Stanley that grace the book. Finally, Jim Lighthizer, the president of the CWPT wrote the excellent foreword at the beginning of the book.

In short, I am grateful for the input and assistance of a lot of people, all of whom went a long way to making this book what it is. Enjoy.

    Hi Eric,
    I notice that the cover refers to the book as part of the Sesquicentennial Series. Have other books been written new to make up the series, or will some of your other titles be included and offered as part of the series?

    There already are other books in the series by other authors, and there will be more.

    Greetings Eric,

    I am a long time fan of your site and blogs. I couldn’t imagine a better time to make my first post than now…wishing you the very best of luck with the new book! Can’t wait to get my own copy and learn more about the battle and the cast of characters involved.
    By the way, although I’m a Virginian, my folks hail from up around your neck of the woods, Grove City, OH and are both Buckeyes. Great little town.

    Keep up the great work,

    -Dayton Henceroth
