Terry Lowry

General William Averell’s famed raid into West Virginia, and his clash with General John Echols. 302 pages with index. List all casualties and wounded men. Numerous photographs of the Marlinton/Hiilsboro area published for the first time. The only book ever written exclusively on this battle.

Terry Lowry has written a book that would be worthy of a much larger battle, very thorough. This is a detailed and well researched book that is packed with relevant information.

There are a number of maps, including notes about original park map errors and the like. There are detailed reviews of each regimental/battalion commander and the units themselves, as well as extensive first hand accounts of the action. There are many photos of participants as well. Since it is a small scale (but hard fought) battle, casualties tabulations are given down to individual soldier’s names in many instances.

Highly recommended.
