Wild Rose (Patterson Memorial)

All roads led to Gettysburg, a new look at the Civil War's pivotal battle, Troy D. Harman - hardcover

"Gettysburg Ranger and historian Troy Harman reframes the story of the Battle of Gettysburg from the historical view that it was an "accidental" battle to show that it was instead a logical and strategic clash, based on his years of researching the Civil War and studying the terrain of Gettysburg, south-central Pennsylvania, and northern Maryland"--, Provided by publisher
