    Hardcover ☆ Gettysburg ePUB ¸ gettysburg download, Gettysburg eBookGettysburg is the most famous battle in American history Occurring over three days in July 1863 it was a seesaw affair in which the fate of a nation continually rested on a wobbling flank a rugged hillside a gap in a line It was a battle that took ordinary local geographic features and made them immortal the Peach Orchard Devil’s Den Little Round Top When it was over nothing had been decided The Confederate Army of Robert E Lee escaped The Union Army of George Meade let them And the war went on for two years bloodier by far than anything either side had ever seen The battle though has significance beyond its enormous cost After Gettysburg Lee’s Army never took an offensive posture After Gettysburg Lee no longer wore invincibility as a cloak And after Gettysburg Ulysses Grant took command Grant was a great man and a great general a man of iron will and tenacity When Grant came east the Confederacy was doomed As befitting its great stature Gettysburg has been well cove

    Hardcover ☆ Gettysburg ePUB ¸ gettysburg download, Gettysburg eBookI think it would be difficult if not impossible to find a book about Gettysburg that was thoroughly researched and coupled with thought provoking analysis than what Allen Guelzo has presented us with in this book I cannot say that I am a Civil War buff but I have done a fair amount of reading about that war and this battle What amazed me was Guelzo's analysis Things I thought I knew I no longer feel confident in repeating as fact Joshua Chamberlain not a hero at Little Roundtop? Pickett's Charge not an insane suicide mission? The victory a demonstration of lucky breaks than any superior strategy or soldiering or leadership Yes these are just some of the things this author opines and then backs up At 482 pages of text and 117 pages of notes this is not a quick read and maybe not for a reader with only casual interest in this battle The author lays out in detail every significant and some not so significant events that occurred during this
