FINALIST - 2012 BOOK-OF-THE-YEAR AWARDS
Written in the same format as the Gettysburg books, this book reveals the stories of the men who fought in what became the bloodiest one-day battle in American history. In just 12 hours, some 23,000 soldiers were killed, wounded, or missing. President Lincoln used the tenuous Union victory as leverage to issue the Emancipation Proclamation.
