From the events that led to the clash at Gettysburg in July 1863 to the retreat of Robert E Lee's defeated Confederates, Richard Wheeler uses the words of participants -- both Northern and Southern -- to bring one of the Civil War's bloodiest, most pivotal battles to life. Wheeler blends these compelling personal accounts into a startlingly vivid tapestry of war and a dramatic narrative that entertains as well as informs. This is eyewitness history at its best.

Review: Witness to Gettysburg

User Review  - Tom Darrow - Goodreads

Nothing really outstanding about this book. The battle is so thoroughly covered that it would take something a bit out of the ordinary to pull that off. The book contains numerous full-page illustrations and maps. Read full review
