Written in the same format as the Gettysburg books, this book reveals the stories of the men who fought in what was the bloodiest one-day battle in American history, during which 23,000 soldiers were killed, wounded, or missing in just 12 hours.   President Lincoln used the tenuous Union victory as leverage to issue the Emancipation Proclamation.  Finalist for 2012 Book of the Year.
