    Story
    (4)

    James M. McPherson, who has led countless tours of Gettysburg over the years, reflects on the meaning of the battle, describes the events of those terrible three days in July 1863, and places the struggle in the greater context of American and world history. Along the way, he intersperses stories of his own encounters with the place over several decades, as well as debunking several popular myths about the battle itself.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. The story is straightforward and understandable. Mcpherson gives a nice 2 hour summary and brings up some personal notes and references to break the story up.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The personal stories behind leaders as well as the 'tour' of Gettysburg that runs along with the story.


    Which character – as performed by James M. McPherson – was your favorite?

    None in particular, being a Marylander.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    My memorable moments include Chamberlain's victory at Little round top, Lee's thoughts of Pickett's charge, the honoring of veterans but, especially, Lee's retreat followed by Mead and Lincoln's response.


    Any additional comments?

    Before reading this book try to have a basic understanding of the civil war and Major generals particularly before Gettysburg, but this is not completely necessary.
