    eBook Gettysburg PDF/EPUB ✓ ☆ optionsaveurs.pro gettysburg kindle, Gettysburg eBook“Young Lieutenant Alonzo Cushing graduated early from West Point in 1861 to meet the need for educated soldiers kept his guns firing steadily despite grievous losses among the crews ‘He was as cool and calm as I ever saw him’ recalled one of his men ‘talking to the boys between shots with the glass constantly to his eyes watching the effect of our shots’ But so many gunners were down that Cushing too had to call on infantrymen to help man the guns John Gibbon saw three of Cushing’s limber chests blow up at once sending up a huge column of smoke and fire and triggering ‘triumphant yells of the enemy’ Finally only two of Cushing’s 3 inch Ordinance rifles were still serviceable A shell fragment eviscerated one of the infant

    eBook Gettysburg PDF/EPUB ✓ ☆ optionsaveurs.pro gettysburg kindle, Gettysburg eBookA very detailed account of the battle If you want a blow by blow person by person narrative this is it Well written I found the politicking of the generals interesting Some things never change Despite the fact it's life and death for the common soldier many generals still are interested in their careerThe dry narrative hides the horror of this kind of battle; the bodies torn and destroyedI used this book as a reference for my Gettysburg mission in Independence Day Time Patrol Independence Day because I needed to know why the Union didn't counter attack on the 4th of July The day after Pickett's Charge Lincoln was certainly pushing for it I agree with the author and with General Meade though that an attack on Lee's for

    eBook Gettysburg PDF/EPUB ✓ ☆ optionsaveurs.pro gettysburg kindle, Gettysburg eBookI was visiting Gettysburg the weekend I started reading this book and brought the book along as my textbook I've read other books about Gettysburg but I understand this is an especially good overview of the battle During the weekend I was in Gettysburg I got to see the monument that commemorates the first shot fired at Gettysburg It's easy to miss because it's uite small and until recently was on private land The Park Service recently purchased the house and property on which the monument stands It was farther west of Gettysburg than I had anticipated I didn't realize that the Union's initial position began three ridges out from Seminary Ridge I highly recommend hiring a

    eBook Gettysburg PDF/EPUB ✓ ☆ optionsaveurs.pro gettysburg kindle, Gettysburg eBookAn excellent book about the most famous battle of the Civil War Sears does a great job of covering every last bit of the battle in depth He includes the lead up to the battle with Lee's initial discussions with Jefferson Davis about invading Pennsylvania and the fallout from Chancellorsville in Hooker's army which eventually leads to Hooker's resignation and replacement by Meade when he is in the midst of chasing the Rebel armyThe book paints uite an interes

    eBook Gettysburg PDF/EPUB ✓ ☆ optionsaveurs.pro gettysburg kindle, Gettysburg eBookVery solid very thorough recounting of this key battle including the immediate lead up and aftermath While there is a tremendous amount of they went here and did this it doesn't generally get bogged down A few illustrationsbattle maps would have been helpful but most readers should be able to follow the flow of battle in their head The book dealt a lot with the personalities interactions and foibles of the men who led the troops If you want a soldier's viewperspective you won't get that here but the high level interactions were really interesting and added a lot of context and so that's why to historical events that I previously knew about but couldn't really put in context As for the accuracy I can't really say I'm just not enough of a Civil War buff to say whether the author's explanations for howwhy things
