Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This handy, logically organized paperback will help visitors, armchair and actual, to the Gettysburg National Military Park to understand the 466 monuments and 366 tablets that have been erected over the years on the Pennsylvania park's nine square miles. Huntington (Searching for George Gordon Meade: The Forgotten Victor of Gettysburg) arranges his descriptions alphabetically by state (where markers for specific regiments are noted, for example), Alabama to Wisconsin; these are followed by a smaller number of monuments to specific men (Armistead to Zook); monuments to the armies as a whole; and, under "Other," such entries as the Gettysburg Women's Memorial and the Lincoln Address Memorial. Huntington cross-references the listings to positions shown on maps at the back of the book, as well as to GPS coordinates. Each description comes with a small color photograph of the monument or tablet, background on the subject (e.g., that a monument to the 134th New York Infantry "indicates the regiment's position on July 2, when it helped defend East Cemetery Hill against the men of Jubal Early's division") and the date of the piece's dedication. With a "Summary of the Battle" and occasional text boxes with primary-source quotes about engagements. VERDICT Exactly what it intends to be, and sure to be useful for its specific purpose.—Margaret Heilbrun, Library Journal
