Gettysburg 1863

PDF EBook by Richard Wheeler

EBook Description

Wheeler's 302 page book on Gettysburg is a good read for those interested in the details of troop movement prior to the battle. Gettysburg 1863 PDF EBookThe first half (at least) of the text is devoted to the weeks leading to the battle, movement of troops from both armies, and the reasons for why the battle occurred when and where it did.The second half of the book is devoted to the battle itself, primarily with troop movements again, major charges, key personalities.Some stories will be familiar to the Civil War buff.My only criticisms are that on occasion, Wheeler interjects the type of details that give a "you were there" feel to the narrative, but are possibly his own conjecture.Although there is a bibliography and index, the book is not footnoted.So we do not know, again, if some details of the narrative are taken from primary sources or are supplied by the author.This is a minor criticism and does not detract from the overall quality of the book or research behind it.All in all, a good read for the serious student of Gettysburg.4 stars.
