While I am very pleased with the way my Maps of First Bull Run turned out, from a marketing standpoint, it was probably not the wisest topic to work on after the very successful Maps of Gettysburg. My intent at the time was to "run the table," preparing a book for each campaign in sequential order. We quickly learned that First Bull Run was not a favorite battle. We therefore selected the most popular battle after Gettysburg (in the Eastern Theater) and that is Antietam. To be honest, I am 62 and don't know how many more of these books I can complete. My goal is to have a book on every campaign, from First Bull Run to Appomattox.
In future posts, I will finish the story by explaining what book is being completed and what the next project will be.
