    Gettysburg PDF/EPUB ↠ ´ PDF/EPUB amateur sleuth.co gettysburg epub, Gettysburg eBook“Young Lieutenant Alonzo Cushing graduated early from West Point in 1861 to meet the need for educated soldiers kept his guns firing steadily despite grievous losses among the crews ‘He was as cool and calm as I ever saw him’ recalled one of his men ‘talking to the boys between shots with the glass constantly to his eyes watching the effect of our shots’ But so many gunners were down that Cushing too had to call on infantrymen to help man the guns John Gibbon saw three of Cushing’s limber chests blow up at once sending up a huge column of smoke and fire and triggering ‘triumphant yells of the enemy’ Finally only two of Cushing’s 3 inch Ordinance rifles were still serviceable A shell fragment eviscerated one of the infantry volunteers who pleaded for someone to put him out of his agony When no one had nerve enough he pulled out a pistol and ended the agony himself Presently Cushing was painfully wounded in the shoulder and groin but

    Gettysburg PDF/EPUB ↠ ´ PDF/EPUB amateur sleuth.co gettysburg epub, Gettysburg eBookA very detailed account of the battle If you want a blow by blow person by person narrative this is it Well written I found the politicking of the generals interesting Some things never change Despite the fact it's life and death for the common soldier many generals still are interested in their careerThe dry narrative hides the horror of this kind of battle; the bodies torn and destroyedI used this book as a reference for my Gettysburg mission

    Gettysburg PDF/EPUB ↠ ´ PDF/EPUB amateur sleuth.co gettysburg epub, Gettysburg eBookI was visiting Gettysburg the weekend I started reading this book and brought the book along as my textbook I've read other books about Gettysburg but I understand this is an especially good overview of the battle During the weekend I was in Gettysburg I got to see the monument that commemorates the first shot fired at Gettysburg It's easy to miss because it's uite small and until recently was on private land The Park Service recently purchased the house and property on which the monument stands It was farther west of Gettysburg than I had anticipated I didn't realize that the Union's initial position began three ridges out from Seminary Ridge I highly recommend hiring a lice

    Gettysburg PDF/EPUB ↠ ´ PDF/EPUB amateur sleuth.co gettysburg epub, Gettysburg eBookI think I see the value of Sears' work He is not an exacting historian He is not an archive rat who will prove the precise location of a regiment in an obscure battle He also has defined bias aganist certain men who can seemingly do nothing right in this book Howard Slocum Pleasanton Kilpatrick etc He is also not a person to overturn the existing orthodoxy This does no
