Join author Joseph Collins as he talks about how his genealogical research brought to life this little-known/long-forgotten Civil War battle. His book, The Battle of West Frederick, July 7, 1864: Prelude to Battle of Monocacy, details what took place in the farm fields west of Frederick City two days before the Battle of Monocacy. While concentrating on the military activities during this time period, the book takes time to discuss the ransoms of three Maryland communities by the invading Confederates - namely Frederick, Hagerstown, and Middletown.
