The Gettysburg Battlefield: The Union Regimental Commanders


A Guide to the Battlefield Sites of the Union Regimental Commanders Who Were Casualties

In this thoroughly researched volume, the reader will learn about the officers in direct command of the Union regiments who were casualties in the battle at Gettysburg. The reader will find a short biography on each officer, information concerning their wounding sites, the nature of their wounds, the hospitals where they were taken, the monuments pertaining to them, and subsequently their final resting places. This is the first volume in a four-part series on the Commanders at Gettysburg. It is arranged in chronological order, divided into each of the three days of battle, and then divided again into the arena of events. This should help the reader find any particular officer with ease. A wealth of photographs, several maps, a bibliography, and an index add to the value of this work.
