Gettysburg (Landmark Books)by Mackinlay Kantor
Synopses & Reviews
When troops entered Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, the South seemed to be winning the Civil War. But Gettysburg was a turning point. After three bloody days of fighting, the Union finally won the battle. Inspired by the valor of the many thousands of soldiers who died there, President Lincoln visited Gettysburg to give a brief but moving tribute. His Gettysburg Address is one of the most famous speeches in American history.
Describes the bloodiest engagement of the Civil War, the Battle of Gettysburg, and its impact on the people in that part of Pennsylvania.
Much more than an account of advances and retreats, this is the story of the men and women who heard the whine of shells and felt the sting of wounds during three horrible days of the bloodiest, most desperate engagement of the Civil War. Includes the complete text of Lincoln's Gettysburg Address.
