…Atlas of Mounted Operations from Brandy Station Through Falling Waters, June 9 July 14, 1863

"The Maps of Gettysburg, Gottfried's inaugural and groundbreaking atlas published in 2007, covered only a small portion of the cavalry's actions during the seminal campaign. This book addresses that topic in-depth in a way that no other study has ever achieved. Gottfried covers the opening battle of the campaign at Brandy Station in detail, followed by the actions at Aldie, Middleburg, and Upperville, where Jeb Stuart's cavalry successfully halted Alfred Pleasonton's probes toward the Blue Mountain passes in an effort to determine the location of Robert E. Lee's army. The movements toward Gettysburg are covered in a series of maps, including the actions at Westminister, Hanover, and Hunterstown. The five major actions on July 2-3 at Gettysburg take up a considerable portion of the book and include the fight at Brinkerhoff Ridge, and four more on July 3 (Stuart against David Gregg northeast of the town, Wesley Merritt's fight along Emmitsburg Road, Judson Kilpatrick's actions near the base of Big Round Top, and Grumble Jones's near-destruction of the 6th U.S. Cavalry near Fairfield).

The cavalry also played a vital role during Lee's retreat to the Potomac River. The numerous fights at Monterrey Pass, Smithfield, Boonsboro, Funkstown, and Hagerstown were of critical importance to both sides and are covered in detail. The book concludes with the fight at Falling Waters and ends with an epilogue recounting events occurring in Virginia through the end of July…"

I have it. A great book as his other are too. The battles are broken down into multiple maps. Thus there are countless scenarios for parts of battles, or you could do the whole thing.

The price has really dropped since Amazon first got it. I just bought one for a hospitalized friend and paid $32.55 USD. Now only $23.15 USD. I never expected that big of a drop.
