NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. - Aug. 23, 2018 - PRLog -- Books-A-Million to Host Book Signing for Wade Hampton's Iron Scouts

Local author D. Michael Thomas will be available to sign copies of book


Serving from late 1862 to the war's end, Wade Hampton's Scouts were a key component of the comprehensive intelligence network designed by Generals Robert E. Lee, J.E.B. Stuart and Wade Hampton. The Scouts were stationed behind enemy lines on a permanent basis and provided critical military intelligence to their generals. They became proficient in "unconventional" warfare and emerged unscathed in so many close-combat actions that their foes grudgingly dubbed them Hampton's "Iron Scouts." Author D. Michael Thomas presents the previously untold story of the Iron Scouts for the first time.
