Gettysburg : Culp's Hill and Cemetery Hill (Civil War America Ser.)

by Pfanz, Harry W

Condition: See description


Chapel Hill, NC, U.S.A.: University of North Carolina Press, 1993. Fine in a Fine dustjacket. Black boards. The spine is silver-stamped. Quarto. 507pps. There is a mild bump to the heel of the spine, otherwise flawless: clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp. No apparent reading wear and no previous ownership markings. The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, is as new. ".In this companion to his celebrated earlier book, 'Gettysburg -- The Second Day', Harry Pfanz provides the first definitive account of the fighting between the Army of the Potomac and Robert E. Lee's Army of Northern Virginia at Cemetery Hill and Culp's Hill -- two of the most critical engagements at Gettysburg on 2 and 3 July, 1863. Pfanz provides detailed tactical accounts of each stage of the fighting and explores the interactions between -- and decisions made by -- generals on both sides. He suggests that Union blunders nearly resulted in a victory for Confederate lieutenant general Richard S. Ewell on 2 July, although defeat came the next morning at the hands of Union troops fighting behind breastworks at Culp's Hill. This book also explores the Confederate occupation of the town of Gettysburg, the skirmishing in the south end of the town and in front of the hills, and the small but decisive fight between Union cavalry and the Stonewall Brigade."
