Summary
This is the revised edition of a respected and popular guide to Gettysburg National Military Park. The authors have made significant changes to the guide, addressing alterations to the park during the past fifteen years and adding new information and improved maps that enrich park visitors' understanding of the Battle of Gettysburg. The volume retains its blend of official reports, commanding officers' observations, and terrain descriptions, and easy-to-use maps that allow park visitors to follow the battle as it actually unfolded. For the new edition, the authors provide double the number of maps, this time by master cartographer Steven Stanley, to effectively track directional changes for visitors driving through the park. They include new sections highlighting strategic and operational context for the Gettysburg campaign and providing background about Lee's decision to invade Pennsylvania. They have also added new information about the cavalry battle on Day 3 and decisions and actions of General Meade, and the "Capabilities and Doctrine" appendix addresses more fully the evolution of cavalry tactics in the battle's aftermath. The new volume also features a useful appendix on logistics that illuminates one of an army commander's most challenging tasks, sustaining the force during the campaign
