Publisher's Summary

Gettysburg is the sixth in a 10-book series spanning the Civil War and describing its effects on one Southern family.

Stonewall Jackson was dead, but Confederate morale was never higher. Will and Mac, the two eldest Brannon sons, are in the ranks of the Stonewall Brigade and Jeb Stuart's cavalry. As Jackson’s former corps marches up the Shenandoah Valley, Lee's army follows, and they eventually clash at Gettysburg. Will is kept in the thick of the combat around Culp's Hill, while Mac sees action with the Southern cavalry at Hanover. Both are swallowed up in the melee of the fighting, and neither emerges unscathed.

Bruised and bleeding, the Confederate army stumbles back into Virginia, a fourth of their number dead. As news spreads of the defeat and the huge number of casualties, the Brannon clan in Culpeper County anxiously awaits word on the fates of two sons.

    "So moving and so heroic"

    As I thought would be the case if you have gotten this far in the series you will care about the different members of the Brannon family and how the war is effecting them, but what I wasn't prepared for was the incredible word painting by James Reasoner of the Battle of Gettysburg - it was some of the most vivid I've heard or read. It was brilliantly portrayed and excellently narrated by Lloyd James. I was moved to tears as I heard the valiant Pickett's Charge and its aftermath.

    While this series is glorifying the south's efforts in the civil war, in this book the futility of war was very apparent and given personal meaning to the Brannon's family and the listener. I can't wait to start the next book
