Comments to eBook So You Think You Know Gettysburg?: The Stories behind the Monuments and the Men Who Fought One of America's Most Epic Battles
Realistic
Let's face it - a lot of writing from hard-core Civil War Buffs and Historians is dry. And a lot of touristy volumes rehash the same stories over and over again. If you are a lover of history, yet not a live/breathe Civil War buff, either end is boring.

This book was a refreshing balance. The subject matter is something that isn't touched on as often when touring a battlefield: why is what I'm looking at there? What's the story behind this monument? What's the significance of how this looks? In detailing the histories of monuments, objects and buildings in the park and town the authors touch on stories that are interesting light fare.

And the photography included is beautiful.

My sister and I will be headed to Gettysburg this year for our 5th visit. This book will accompany us.

This book outlines each and every monument at Gettysburg. We used it when we went there so we could see the things that interested us most as Gettysburg is huge and you could spend several days and still not really see everything. The book has maps that let you know where stuff is and what is close to what so you can plan your visit and it also describes the history of each monument so you get some interesting facts about who commissioned what monument and why. Vey helpful, if you plan a trip take this book with you.

Great book to enhance your trip to Gettysburg. We used this along with the auto tape tour and got a much more detailed view of the battle and the monuments' symbolism. Also love the fact that there are other side item details such as Sach's bridge, Amos Humisted, Fr. Corabi. These stories added a human interest aspect to the battle. Love the fact that it has co ordinates as well. Highly recommend taking this book on your next trip there.

Not entirely what I thought it would be but it is still interesting. It has photos of a lot of the monuments and usually a paragraph about the story behind that monument. It also has a photo of where a battle took place or a hospital used and then again usually a paragraph with a story behind that photo. To give you an idea of what it is just think about a book you would buy at any tourist spot.

I live ~140 miles from Gettsyburg, and I visit Gettysburg often. I have far too many books on Gettysburg. But I continue to buy anything on Gettysburg.

This book did provide me with some info that i didn't know. Most appreciative is is the GPS coordinates used on every topic.

I visit Gettysburg just on day trips, therefore my time is precious. Those GPS coordinates as well as the content make this a great book for any visitor to Gettysburg.

Has a lot of great information if you love Gettysburg.

I LOVE this book that takes you on a tour of every monument, very descriptive! I can't wait to visit again, w/o knowing this info before it's not fun or worth it!
If you enjoy the Gettysburg battlefield than you will enjoy this informative and colorful book.
