Today marks the 147th anniversary of what is frequently described as the largest cavalry battle on the North American continent. It's worth paying a visit to the outstanding web resources at the Civil War Preservation Trust site, where you'll find first-rate maps, an interview with author Eric Wittenberg, an article by Bud Hall, photos, video tours, and more.
On the weekend after Labor Day, Eric will be conducting a tw0-day bus tour of Brandy Station, from Kelly's Ford to Trevilian Station. The first 12 registrants (of which there are half a dozen so far) will receive a free copy of Eric's new book on Brandy Station. Additionally, $10 of every registration will be donated to CWPT.
