Praise for The Maps of Bull Run

"This very interesting book is highly recommended. It can stand alone as a history of the campaign and battles, it is an essential companion to any history of these battles, and it is a must for any Civil War buff visiting these battlefields."

Civil War News, A Civil War blog

". . . absolute heaven for wargamers and students of the Civil War who are into strategy and tactics. . . . I will be looking forward to each and every volume in this series and I cannot recommend The Maps of First Bull Run highly enough."

Brett Schulte, A Civil War blog

"Brad Gottfried's The Maps of First Bull Run is a solid follow-up to his The Maps of Gettysburg. The maps are very user-friendly, easily readable, and highly detailed without being the least bit confusing, and there are enough of them to give a complete picture of the course of the action. Combine each full-page map with the facing text, and this book provides readers with a good understanding of much of the action in the Eastern Theater during the first year of the war."

James A. Morgan, III, author of A Little Short of Boats: The Fights at Ball's Bluff and Edward's Ferry, October 21-22, 1861

"Brad Gottfried's The Maps of First Bull Run is filled with full-page maps and accompanying facing text that will help make sense of the confusing series of events for Bull Run/Manassas neophytes and old hands alike. I highly recommend it."

- Harry Smeltzer, host of the Civil War blog Bull Runnings (
