Description - The Colors of Courage by Margaret S. Creighton

In the summer of 1863, as Union and Confederate armies converged on southern Pennsylvania, the town of Gettysburg found itself thrust onto the centre stage of war. The three days of fighting that ensued decisively turned the tide of the Civil War. In The colours of Courage , Margaret Creighton narrates the tale of this crucial battle from the viewpoint of three unsung groups- women, immigrants, and African Americans- and reveals how wide the conflict's dimensions were. A historian with a superb flair for storytelling, Creighton draws on memoirs, letters, diaries, and newspapers to bring to life the individuals at the heart of her narrative. The colours of Courage is a stunningly fluid work of original history-one that redefines the Civil War's most remarkable battle.
