This is the definitive work on a battle where both sides claimed victory, but in reality neither side won. It is the story of the disorganization of the Confederate forces and the dogged persistence of the Union army. Filled with personal reflections by soldiers, detailed yet highly readable descriptions of the battle, plus maps & photos, this book brings Carnifex Ferry back to life.

The highly sought after and rare book on the Battle of Carnifex Ferry, September Blood by Terry Lowry is available again, after being out of print for almost 25 years. To celebrate the 150th anniversary of this important early battle of the Civil War, Quarrier Press has reprinted a small number of this well-researched and highly entertaining book.

The book has a new introduction by Terry Lowry and is full of maps, photos, drawings, and engravings.

Reviews:

Here is what was said about September Blood 25 years ago:

“An excellent digest of the action at Cross Lanes and Carnifex Ferry… no stone was left unturned (in research). And, it shows.” – Harold C. Gadd, The Charleston Daily Mail

“The definitive account of the engagement at Carnifex Ferrry … a high-quality book … covers the subject thoroughly … hightly recommended.” – Jeffry Wert, Blue and Gray Magazine

“Lowry is thorough in his treatment … three cheers for Lowry in his pursuit of regional history.” – John Dwyer, Military Images Magazine

“A detailed account of a significant Civil War battle fought in Western Virginia.” – Goldenseal magazine

“Although a small engagement, the author’s attention to detail produces a historical document which will record the events of September 10, 1861 for history.” - George McDonald III, North South Trader magazine

“The author expertly described the battle and explains why it took place … the author has provided an accurate and detailed account of this early Civil War engagement.” – Michael Mullins, Civil War Book Exchange

“Mr. Lowry states this is not the definitive work on this battle, however, I would disagree. This is the most comprehensive coverage I have read on this relatively unknown site … well-written coverage of every aspect of the engagement.” – Military Explorations magazine
