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.
  • Original primary source material. Co-author John Lockwood is the National Mall Historian and uncovered documents from the period never used before.
  • This is popular history—reminiscent of James Swanson's MANHUNT, but focused on the beginning of the war rather than the end.
