Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

The South is emboldened by their victory at Bull Run. McClellan is hesitant, either unable or unwilling to confront Lee head on, fearing another defeat for the inexperienced Union troops. The North begins to move on Richmond, the capital of the Confederacy. The Battle of Fair Oaks temporarily checks the South but incorrect maps, poor information, swampy terrain and bad roads leave the Union unable to solidify their advantage. Infighting between the Army and the Federal government allows the Confederacy to escape a devastating blow once again. The South's ability to move rapidly is impressive, but lack of direction from the Confederate government lets the opportunity for decisive gains slip away.
