Over the course of four years of exemplary service, the North Carolina brigade commanded first by Lawrence O'Bryan Branch,
and then by James H. Lane, fought on the most storied fields of the war. Some of the most well-known Civil War
engagement, like Second Manassas, Sharpsburg, Fredericksburg, and Gettysburg, saw the Branch-Lane Brigade in the forefront
of battle. The brigade's career includes spectacular battle honors and dazzling successes, such as saving the entire Army
of Northern Virginia twice at Spotsylvania Court House. Yet, there were also devastating losses and costly mistakes, most
notably, the mortal wounding of the legendary Stonewall Jackson at Chancellorsville. The story of this brigade is one
marked by glory and tragedy, from the first days of the war to the lingering effects long after Appomattox.
General Lee's Immortals: The Battles and Campaigns of the Branch-Lane brigade tells this remarkable story.
