About the Book

The crucial battle of the Civil War. Illustrated throughout.

After his audacious triumph in the face of overwhelming odds at the Battle of Chancellorsville in May 1863, Robert E. Lee decided to build upon his success by immediately embarking on an equally daring invasion of the North.

On the morning of July 1, 1863, the Union and Confederate armies, some 172,000 soldiers, clashed on the fields and hills around Gettysburg, Pennsylvania in what would become a three day battle so bloody and so crucial to the outcome of the Civil War that the name 'Gettysburg' would forever after be a symbol for the horror and sacrifice of the War for the Union.

Now, Easton Press presents the illustrated history that uses contemporary personal reports to capture the urgency and violence of the legendary battle: GETTYSBURG, a grand Collector’s Edition bound in leather and accented with 22kt gold.

Gettysburg brought to life with eyewitness accounts and vintage images.


Beginning with Robert E. Lee's decision that an invasion represented a now-or-never opportunity to advance the Confederate cause and extending to Abraham Lincoln's iconic speech on the battlefield months later, GETTYSBURG is a vivid and visceral account of the Civil War's pivotal battle.

These pages take the reader step-by-step through the three days of fighting, examining the crucial assaults, including Seminary Ridge, Little Round Top, and Pickett’s Charge, as well as the personalities and thinking of Lee, George G. Meade, James Longstreet, J.E.B. Stuart, and other leaders whose strategies and errors determined the battle's outcome.
GETTYSBURG draws extensively on meticulously researched first-hand accounts to tell the story, using the letters, diaries, memoirs, and official reports of those who fought to convey what happened and why and the courage, despair, and terror of the deadly battle.

Illustrated with hundreds of Civil War era photographs and artworks, GETTYSBURG is dramatic history that places the reader in the center of the combat that changed history.
