In this vivid account of the Civil War's pivotal battle, the experience of Gettysburg residents are counterposed to accounts of Union and Confederate soldiers who fought each other without respite for three savage days.
The result is a real you-are-there experience that makes this great and tragic battles vivid and alive. It puts us in Lee's mind as he ponders using frontal assaults that in the event cost him victory. And we share with Union defenders their determination that, at least on Union soil, they would not give way.
"By tying these gripping personal accounts together, Richard Wheeler gives us an unique perspective of the entire Gettysburg experience." (Publisher's Source)
