Discover why the fighting at Monocacy became known as the "Battle that Saved Washington" as Ryan Quint uncovers the story of how outnumbered U.S. soldiers under the command of Maj. Gen. Lew Wallace faced off against Lt. Gen. Jubal Early’s Confederates as they threatened the capital.

Ryan Quint graduated from the University of Mary Washington, and is a seasonal park historian at the Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania National Military Park. His Civil War interests focus on the Union armies and Jubal Early’s 1864 invasion of Maryland. His book, Determined to Stand and Fight: The Battle of Monocacy, July 9, 1864, on which this talk is based, is part of Savas Beatie’s Emerging Civil War Series.
