Review: THE COLORS OF COURAGE by Margaret S. Creighton

Bookworm’s Dinner read and reviewed The Colors of Courage: Gettysburg’s Forgotten History by Margaret S. Creighton for the U.S. Civil War Reading Challenge 2011.  Here’s an excerpt:

The Battle of Gettysburg took place over three days and considered by most to be the turning point of the war.  Creighton’s remarkably engaging narrative taken from letters, diaries, military records, primary and secondary sources creates a picture walk of history that took place during the days leading up to the battle, during and the weeks and months that followed.  I am thrilled to be able to take advantage of her extensive bibliography and notes included at the end.
