Of more than 2,000 land engagements of the American Civil War, Gettysburg ranks as one of the most horrific and catastrophic battles in North American history; more men actually fought and died on this battlefield than in any other encounter on North American soil and marked the beginning of the end for the Confederacy. By way of gripping comic strip narrative that places the reader at the heart of the action, this 36 paged full-colour comic book, with a further 8 pages of essential information on the background, aftermath, and key players of the conflict, ultimately provides a thrilling account of bravery and sacrifice, shown by ordinary men who became extraordinary heroes in a catastrophic fight for their nation's future.
