Three Days at Gettysburg: Essays on Confederate and Union Leadership

Synopsis

No Civil War military campaign has inspired as much controversy about leadership as has Gettysburg. The contributors to this volume believe there is room for scholarship that revisits the sources on which earlier accounts have been based and challenges prevailing interpretations of key officer's performances. They have trained their investigative lens on some obvious and some relatively neglected figures, with an eye toward illuminating not only what happened at Gettysburg but also the nature of command at different levels.
