About this title

Synopsis:

This illustrated history for young readers offers a sweeping view of the events that led up to and followed this famous battle. The story begins in 1863 and continues to 1923, told through the voices of the participants. The gripping images draw readers into the turning point of the American Civil War.

From the Inside Flap:

During the Battle of Gettysburg, soldiers and civilians alike witnessed the heroism and tragedy of combat. Considered a turning point in American history, the three-day struggle ended Lee's invasion of the North. So intense was the fighting that more soldiers lost their lives at Gettysburg than during any other battle of the Civil War. This fictional collection of reflections based on actual events occurring between June 3, 1863, and July 2, 1923, provides a unique perspective of what it was like to live through those historic days.

The voices of those involved, from Robert E. Lee and George Meade to foot soldiers and civilians, from Chamberlain in his heroic downhill rally to a color-bearer in Pickett's doomed charge against Union lines, share the apprehension and horrors of battle, pride in their country and their cause, and sorrow over the lives lost. Through their stories a complete picture of one of the most important battles of the Civil War emerges.
