Written by a Union officer who was on the staff of the divisional commander holding the precise part of the Federal line against which was directed the most famous military assault in American history, Pickett's Charge. During all of it, he was in the exact storm center; and in this account, with the heat of battle still on him, he tells just what happened there, under the battle smoke that must always dim the sight of later generations. Includes an Index. "...offers an understanding and an emotional experience that can be had from few other Civil War books. It is very, very much worth reading." - Bruce Catton
