There never was such a campaign, not even by Napoleon.' So wrote William Dorsey Pender, a brigadier-general in the Army of Northern Virginia, in the wake of the Second Battle of Manassas. His words were not hollow boasts - the campaign in north Virginia in the late summer of 1862 demonstrated Robert E. Lee's truly great generalship. Although overshadowed by later clashes such as Antietam and Gettysburg, the Second Manassas campaign was a military masterpiece in which Lee and the Army of Northern Virginia came as close as they ever would to exterminating their Federal opponents and ending the war. In so doing Lee confirmed himself as the South's pre-eminent military leader and helped forge his Army into the formidable force it would remain for the rest of the war. The crushing defeat of Federal General John Pope's Army of Virginia provided the springboard for Robert E. Lee's first invasion of the North which would reach it's climax along the banks of Antietam Creek that September.
