The history of the Civil War in Eastern Kentucky has been mostly overlooked or ignored by the vast majority of historians. Little is commonly known about events in the Eastern part of the state beyond the Battles of Ivy Mountain and Middle Creek. “The Most Brilliant Little Victory” is the first ever comprehensive account of Nelson’s Eastern Kentucky Campaign, which eventually led up to the Battle of Ivy Mountain in November 1861. Throughout the book, as it guides readers step by step through Nelson’s campaign, the author has permitted the soldiers to tell their own story by utilizing mostly primary source material. The readers will experience events through the soldiers’ eyes while they accompany the general and his men on their harrowing journey through the mountains of Eastern Kentucky in the fall of 1861.
