Gettysburg Nobody Knows by Gabor S. Boritt

Book Description

On the first three days of July in 1863, more than 160,000 Union and Rebel soldiers fought a monumental battle in Gettysburg, a bloody contest that has been hailed as "the turning point of the Civil War". It is without a doubt the best known engagement of the war and may in fact be the best known battle in American military history. It is certainly the most studied battle Americans have ever fought in. And yet, for all its prominence, this singular moment in our history still stirs heated debate. Did Jeb Stuart's absence leave General Lee blind? Should Ewell have attacked Cemetery Hill? Was Joshua Chamberlain really the hero of Little Round Top? How close did the Confederates come to winning at Gettysburg? And if the Confederates had won, how would history have been different? Now, Gabor Boritt has invited nine leading authorities to shed new light on the greatest battle in our history. The Gettysburg Nobody Knows offers a marvellous reconsideration of this epic event. It will be must reading for the legions of Civil War buffs around the country and for everyone interested in American history.
