The Siege of Washington

The Untold Story of the Twelve Days That Shook the Union

John Lockwood and Charles Lockwood

  • Dramatic, immersive and original story. The "siege of Washington " period has never been the subject of its own volume. We will publish on the 150th anniversary.
  • Original use of primary sources. Co-author John Lockwood is the National Mall Historian and uncovered access to documents from the period never used before.
  • This is popular history-reminiscent of James Swanson's MANHUNT, but focused on the beginning not the end of the war.
