The Maps of Gettysburg : An Atlas of the Gettysburg Campaign, June 3-July 13, 1863
Thousands of books and articles have been written about Gettysburg, but the operation remains one of the most complex and difficult to understand. Bradley Gottfried's groundbreaking The Maps of Gettysburg: An Atlas of the Gettysburg Campaign, June 3 - July 13, 1863 is a unique and thorough study of this multifaceted campaign. The Maps of Gettysburg breaks down the entire operation into thirty map sets or"action-sections" enriched with 144 detailed, full-page colour maps comprising the entire campaign. These cartographic originals bore down to the regimental and battery level and include the march to and from the battlefield and virtually every significant event in between. At least two, and as many as twenty, maps accompany each map set. Keyed to each piece of cartography is a full facing page of detailed text describing the units, personalities, movements, and combat (including quotes from eyewitnesses) depicted on the accompanying map, all of which makes the Gettysburg story come alive. About the Author Bradley M. Gottfried, Ph.D., is the President of the College of Southern Maryland. An avid Civil War historian, Dr. Gottfried is the author of five books.
