This chapter examines the battle between Confederate and Union armies in Kentucky and Virginia during the period from February to April 1863. This period proved pivotal to both causes and determined whether the barrier put up by Confederate southwestern Virginia that separated East Tennessee from loyal forces in Kentucky would remain. Again, Humphrey Marshall attempted to reinvigorate his men and redeem himself. But by the spring of 1863, Marshall's hopes had been dashed by another failure to invade Kentucky and by the recognition of the Appalachian people of the futility of the Southern cause in their theater of war.
