By John Archer
Softcover, 5.5 x 8.5, 100 pages
It has been long neglected by historians and visitors to the battlefield, but the easternmost reaches of Cemetery Ridge formed the critical apex of the Union battle line. The land nestled between Culp's Hill and the Soldiers' National Cemetery at Gettysburg is the only ground on which fighting occurred during each of the three pivotal days of the battle. This study invites the reader to tour this seldom explored segment of the battle, using firsthand accounts to help understand the area with a participant's eye.
