Gettysburg: A Testing of Courage | Noah Andre Trudeau
1 post | 1 to read
America's Civil War raged for more than four years, but it is the three days of fighting in the Pennsylvania countryside in July 1863 that continues to fascinate, appall, and inspire new generations with its unparalleled saga of sacrifice and courage. From Chancellorsville, where General Robert E. Lee launched his high-risk campaign into the North, to the Confederates' last daring and ultimately-doomed act, forever known as Pickett's Charge, the battle of Gettysburg gave the Union army a victory that turned back the boldest and perhaps greatest chance for a Southern nation. Now acclaimed historian Noah Andre Trudeau brings the most up-to-date research available to a brilliant, sweeping, and comprehensive history of the battle of Gettysburg that sheds fresh light on virtually every aspect of it. Deftly balancing his own narrative style with revealing firsthand accounts, Trudeau brings this engrossing human tale to life as never before.

This is one of quite a few books I have on the battle of Gettysburg. It was a pivotal battle during the American Civil War. It was visiting these hallowed grounds as a kid with my dad that gave me my thirst for history. It probably helps too that I work in the town, so I‘m immersed in everything history every day. #TheBattle #SoaringScores
