Just In Case You Think You've Read It All...
As a "Gettysburg" fanatic, I thought there could be little left for me to learn about anything connected to the battle. I had even written a book for teachers about how to use The Killer Angels in the classrom. Well, wasn't I knocked off my smug little pedestal when I read this one!? The opening chapters in particular give a fresh, and for some, I imagine, new insight into the days and weeks after the battle. Boritt draws the scenes of wreckage and slaughter so clearly one cannot help but be moved and his research into the realities of Lincoln's Address is rewarding for even the most casual reader. The prose style is never pedantic but rather almost conversational and engaging. I recommend this for anyone interested in the battle, whether new to that interest or an "old hand."Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
