Well there's a question.

The difference here is that there isn't an easily digested volume on the post-Antietam operations. Needs to be written, and it's a gaping hole in the historiography. There is at least as much grist for the mill as "One Continuous Fight". However it paints McClellan in a much more favourable light than generalist histories.

I actually proposed that particular book a couple of years ago, and nobody was interested in publishing it. Why? Because other than some cavalry fighting in the Loudoun Valley, nothing happened.....
