"Summer's Bloodiest Days" combines gripping eyewitness accounts, archival photographs, and dramatic artwork with the latest scholarly research to tell the story of the Battle of Gettysburg from all sides - Yankee and Rebel officers and soldiers, townspeople, outside observers, and more. Through their eyes readers will get a real sense of how a chance meeting on a dusty road exploded into three days of intense combat. More than 50,000 people were killed, wounded, or taken prisoner and this marked the beginning of the end for the Confederacy. Maps specially created by National Geographic cartographers help readers follow all the action of this complex battle. Names such as Little Round Top, the Peach Orchard, and Pickett's Charge take on new meaning as readers learn about the incredible sacrifices made - often by people still in their teens.
