A Study in Command
The Gettysburg Campaign
by Edwin B. Coddington
A Study in Command
Gettysburg park licensed guides say that this is the one book they consider the foundation of their knowledge and essential to passing their licensing exam.

An excellent in-depth accounting the Gettysburg campaign The events leading up to the battle of Gettysburg, and the battle itself, stand as one of the most significant points in American history. This narrative covers events several months prior to the battle, with a comparatively brief description of the battle itself. The strength of the book is clearly in the campaign itself, with ample reflection on the motives and causes leading to the conflict. The author skillfully overlays the campaign against the political backdrop of the period, and seems to relate many of the command decisions to Presidental authority. While the author presents little novel information, he has done a masterful job of progessively focusing the reader on the causes of the campaign, the difficulties faced by each of the commanders, the onset of the battle, and the aftermath. The book is impeccably referenced and researched, and stands as a indispensible resource for all interested in the Civil War. This book will appeal to anyone who is serious in their study of Gettysburg.

Pickett's Charge in History and Memory

Pickett's Charge in History and Memory
by Carol Reardon
Civil War America
Pickett's Charge--the Confederates' desperate (and failed) attempt to break the Union lines on the third and final day of the Battle of Gettysburg--is best remembered as the turning point of the U.S. Civil War. But Penn State historian Carol Reardon reveals how hard it is to remember the past accurately, especially when an event such as this one so quickly slipped into myth. She writes, "From the time the battle smoke cleared, Pickett's Charge took on this chameleonlike aspect and, through a variety of carefully constructed nuances, adjusted superbly to satisfy the changing needs of Northerners, Southerners, and, finally, the entire nation." With care and detail, Reardon's fascinating book teaches a lesson in the uses and misuses of history.
