I know somewhere there is a thread for Gettysburg books but I'll be hanged if I can find it. My wife got me a book this past Christmas that I have never seen before, anywhere. It is called The Illustrated Gettysburg Reader (An Eyewitness History of the Civil War's Greatest Battle). Not only does it have good historical text that is in line with just about anything else I have read about this battle, but includes first person narrative by eyewitnesses. Some of these stories detail events I've not read about elsewhere and cover some of the more obscure events that did occur within the battle. I especially acquired a new admiration for Greene and his men, and others on Culp's Hill. The book is authored by Rod Gragg, published by Regnery History. Anyone else seen this book?
