Regarded as the turning point of the American Civil War, Gettysburg commemorates the three-day battle that took place in an "unimportant" Pennsylvania town over 150 years ago. From the first shots fired on the morning of July 1, 1863 to Robert E. Lee's losing gamble known as Pickett's Charge on July 3 that resulted in thousands of Confederates being driven back by Union forces, Gettysburg is a snapshot of three of the most important days in US history. Discover rare photos, expertly written articles, and intriguing illustrations and maps detailing the political, military, and social conditions that thrust the sleepy town of Gettysburg forever into the pages of history books. Filled with informative timelines and fact sheets, details on the commanders, weapon technology, and so much more, this handsome volume also captures several human stories, from the 11-year-old sergeant, John L. Clem, who killed a Confederate soldier to John Burns, the only civilian to fight in the battle and many others. Gettysburg also provides a remarkable look at the historic Reconciliation Reunion, Gettysburg today and the preservation efforts, and tons of other interesting details that American history buffs will love.
