The Corps Forward captures more than a Civil War story. It is the epic tale of the only time in American history when an entire college student body, the Virginia Military Institute, engaged in pitched combat, leading an army to victory. Who were these boy soldiers? Where were they raised? What were their experiences during the life-altering fight? What did the survivors do in the post-war era? The fascinating answers are revealed and a story told through biographical sketches of each of the 257 cadets, the faculty and the support staff who marched to that New Market battlefield in 1864.
