Image: Gettysburg: The Story of the Battle with Maps | Paperback: 160 pages | by David Reisch (Author), David M. Detweiler (Editor). Publisher: Stackpole Books (June 1, 2013)Battle of Gettysburg Anniversary (1863)
-- The Battle of Gettysburg was fought July 1–3, 1863, in and around the town of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, by Union and Confederate forces during the American Civil War. This battle involved the largest number of casualties of the entire war and is often described as the war's turning point. Union Maj. Gen. George Meade's Army of the Potomac defeated attacks by Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee's Army of Northern Virginia, halting Lee's invasion of the North.

Read: Gettysburg: The Story of the Battle with Maps
-- 70 color maps and insightful text tell the hour-by-hour story of the 3-day Battle of Gettysburg. Each map shows the same 3 1/2-by-4 1/2-mile view of the battlefield, allowing the reader to visualize the battle as it developed over the entire area, including key engagements, troop movements and positions, and locations of commanders. Sheds new light on important events such as the first clash west of town on July 1, the fighting for Cemetery Hill, the defense of Little Round Top, Pickett's Charge, and more. An ideal introduction for newcomers while the unique approach offers fresh perspectives for those who've read every book on the battle. A perfect companion for battlefield visits and armchair-general debates.
