Summary
"The greatest of all Civil War campaigns, Gettysburg was the turning point of the turning point in our nation's history. From the first gleam in Lee's eye to the last Rebel retreating back across the Potomac, Stephen W. Sears brings every moment of the battle to life with the vivid narrative skill and impeccable scholarship that has made him, in the words of the New York Times Book Review, "arguably the preeminent living historian of the war's eastern theater."" "Based on years of research, this is the first book in a generation that brings everything together, sorts it all out, makes informed judgements, and takes stands. In short, this is the one book on Gettysburg that anyone interested in the Civil War should own."--Jacket
Summary
Drawing on years of research, Sears focuses on the big picture, capturing the entire essence of the momentous three-day struggle while offering fresh insights that will surprise even the best-versed Civil War buffs, from Robert E. Lee's decision to bring the war north, to Joshua L. Chamberlain's brilliant defense of Little Round Top, to George Pickett's fateful charge
