Summary

Summary

In what may be the longest, and most poignant, letter to a relative from a soldier in the Civil War, this authoritative book recounts the bloody, three-day battle in the summer of 1863. Haskell's descriptions of the wounded, of skirmishes, attacks and counterattacks, estimates of losses, and burials are all vividly described. 2 maps.
