In this book, one of the original Landmark series of best-selling children's historical books, author MacKinlay Kantor relates the story of the Battle of Gettysburg as if he were writing a novel. He tells how the citizens of this quiet town peered from their windows in terror as strange, gray-clad soldiers came striding down their streets. Then he describes the three bloody days of fighting, with great detail about the preparation, the battle, and the cleanup, separating fact from fiction. Finally, he talks about the impact that the battle had on the people in that part of Pennsylvania. The original edition had excellent pen and ink illustrations by artist Donald McKay, but these are omitted in the paperback reprint. The descriptions of the fighting and its aftermath are accurate but tasteful and never gratuitous.Read more ›
