Searching for an ultimate victory to end the Civil War, Robert E. Lee and his Army of Northern Virginia fought for three days on the battlefield at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. On July 4, 1863, the Confederate cause was lost, and Lee's army retreated. Union and Confederate forces suffered more than 51,000 casualties. The surrounding meadows and ridges would forever after be considered hallowed ground. This book commemorates the sacrifices made and the pastoral beauty that was witness to such violence.
In Gettysburg: Sentinels of Stone, the battlefield's panoramas are brought to life in beautiful photographs. Accompanying the photographs are stories of the soldiers who fought and citizens who witnessed this pivotal battle. These stories serve to bring special meaning to the photographs of statues, monuments, and terrain.
This photography book features new monuments added to the park in the last five years, including the Elizabeth Thorn monument and the 11th Mississippi monument, which owns the distinction of being the final monument allowed on the Gettysburg battlefield. With its eighty-five full-color photographs and chronicle of events, Gettysburg: Sentinels of Stone offers the perfect keepsake for park visitors and anyone wanting a photographic record of Gettysburg's scenery. In words and pictures, it recalls one of the most significant battles ever waged on American soil.
