The fighting on July 1 1863 built the foundation to what would become known as the bloodiest battle fought on American soil. However, it remains one of the most overlooked locations around the battlefield. Cast into the shadows of more scenic locations such as Little Round Top, Devil’s Den, the Wheatfield and others, it is easy to drive through one of the most iconic aspects of the battlefield.

This comprehensive narrative works to shine light onto the portion of the battlefield that is so often overlooked. While beginning on June 9 through July 1, author James Smith goes through great lengths to explain, in detail, of the movement of troops, human interest stories, humorous accounts, detailed descriptions of the men present for the battle, and an examination of the harrowing deeds it took to preserve a nation during the American Civil War.
