By: Edwin B. Coddington


The Battle of Gettysburg remains one of the most controversial military actions America's history, and one of the most studied. Professor Coddington's is an analysis not only of the battle proper, but of the actions of both Union and Confederate armies for the six months prior to the battle and of the factors affecting General Meade's decision not to pursue the retreating Confederate forces. This book contends that Gettysburg was a crucial Union victory, primarily because of the effective leadership of Union forces-not, as has often been said, only because the North was the beneficiary of Lee's mistakes.
