Today marks the 150th anniversary of the final day of The Battle of Gettysburg. And just today, a special edition of our long-awaited Barksdale’s Charge has arrived at the Battlefield’s Visitors’ center in Gettysburg, PA where author Phillip Thomas Tucker will be to sign copies on Saturday.
While today is the anniversary of “Pickett’s Charge,” this fascinating new book posits that the most important assault of the battle had come the afternoon before —”Barksdale’s Charge”—when the Confederates very nearly broke the Union line. The book informs readers in vivid, fact-filled style why one Northern observer at the time called it “The grandest charge ever seen by mortal man!”
If you can’t make it to Gettysburg this weekend, make sure to preorder you own copy of Barksdale’s Charge here.
