Terrific book. Concise, easy to read, yet full of information. Really fills a gap in the previously published information on artillery. Great detail on how a cannon works, what the job of each artillerist is, the monumentation on the battlefield, order of battle, make up of artillery battries, trivia, official reports... just tons of information.

Format: Hardcover
I was fortunate to meet the author by accident at Pickett's Charge, Gettysburg, and I purchased my autographed book for emotional reasons. I was glad to have given in to them. The book is a gem on many accounts. For the Civil War enthusiast, who doesn't need the background, the non artillery information is placed in appendices in the back. The artillery information is concisely placed in seven chapters, and it is quite easy and interesting to read. It would make an excellent handbook for any teacher of the Civil War, who would love a hands-on approach to how the battles were fought and won/lost; and of course, a must-read for any Gettysburg enthusiast of whom I am one. An absolute delightful read. Colleen Bognet - Foreign Language Teacher/History Day Advisor - Hazleton Area School District

Format: Hardcover
Silent Sentinels: A Reference Guide to the Artillery at Gettysburg is a historical guide to artillery used in the July 1863 battle of Gettysburg. Though hundreds of books have been published on the battle, only a handful have devoted more than a few paragraphs to the role of the "long arm" artillery. Silent Sentinels opens with an overview of the Gettysburg campaign, then narrows its focus to the role of field artillery, its organization, loading and firing, walks the reader through a tour of Gettysburg National Military Park, and even offers a chapter full of Gettysburg Artillery Trivia. Appendices include a list of artillery battles arranged by state and biographical sketches and official reports about union and confederate officers who served at Gettysburg. Black-and- white diagrams revealing the workings of artillery as well as assorted tables round out this excellent, thoroughly researched and focused reference.
