Patterson has often been labeled as the goat and reason the Union lost the battle of First Manassas. His task was to hold the Confederate forces in the Valley in place to prevent them from reinforcing those at Manassas where the main Union attack was to take place. He didn't and through the first major railroad military transport of troops Johnston arrived in the nick of time. Defensive in nature as might be expected.
Has an index and a map as a frontise.
