Small Arms at Gettysburg: Infantry and Cavalry Weapons in America's Greatest Battle
Here we learn that the smoothbore musket, although beloved by some who carried it, sang its swan song, the rifle-musket began to come into its own, and the repeating rifle, although tactically mishandled, gave a glimpse of future promise. This is the story of the weapons and men who carried them into battle during three days in July 1863
Pennsylvania's State Flag is more of a square than a rectangle. It is composed of a blue field on which the State Coat of Arms is embroidered. Draft horses are on either side of the coat of arms and the American eagle rests on the top. The scroll at the bottom reads "Virtue Liberty and Independence".
The first state flag bearing the state coat of arms was authorized by the general assembly in 1799. An act of the general assembly of June 13, 1907, standardized the flag and required that the blue field match the blue of "Old Glory".

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 Presidential authority. While the author presents little novel information, he has done a masterful job of progressively 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 indispensable resource for all interested in the Civil War. This book will appeal to anyone who is serious in their study of Gettysburg.

It places the flag and the people surrounding it in their proper light.
