Student Derek Johnson chose to highlight Lee’s Last Stand: Sailor’s Creek Virginia, 1865He writes:

This book peaked my interest because of the subject matter.  The Battle of Sailor’s Creek has always interested me during the American Civil War because of the small amount of information that is normally provided in histories of the American Civil War about this battle.  Another point that I noticed after choosing this book is that the author was the same first name as I do, right down to the spelling.
