Taken at the Flood: Robert E. Lee and Confederate Strategy in the Maryland Campaign of 1862


Complementing Confederate Tide Rising, Taken at the Flood is a detailed account of the Maryland military campaign itself. This volume focuses on military policy and strategy and the circumstances under which the two commanders, Lee and McClellan, labored. Joseph Harsh advocates rethinking the Maryland campaign and promotes the argument that Antietam was one of the most interesting, critical, and potentially enlightening episodes in U.S. history.
