The Battle of Gettysburg is a vivid firsthand account of the most famous battle of the Civil War. Two weeks later, while his memory was fresh and his adrenaline still high, Union Lieutenant Frank Haskell-a Medal of Honor recipient-wrote this book, one of the most honest and accurate eyewitness accounts of war ever written. Haskell, an officer in the Army of the Potomac, describes soldiers preparing for and fighting in a battle that-unknown to them-would shape the destiny of a nation. Haskell is more than a casual observer, however, he is at the center of the Union line as Pickett's Charge thunders up Cemetery Ridge. This powerfully insightful account-unblemished by an attempt to look good in the history books-preserves an intimate portrait of the most famous Civil War battlefield. Whether you're an armchair historian or a devoted Civil War buff, Tom West's distinctive narration will shed new light on this transcendent moment in American history.
