This compelling anthology examines the controversies surrounding a battle which many historians see as the turning point of the Civil War. Essays, authored by first-person observers and twentieth-century historians, focus on the fury of the fighting, the wisdom of the competing generals' strategies, and the long-term implications of the battle.
"Because of the even-handed presentation, the title makes a strong and lasting impression. The writings are well chosen. A thoughtful and well-delineated addition."
