The book centers around the key battle of the war: the battle of Gettysburg. In July of 1863, the Confederate Army, led by General Robert E. Lee, invaded the North, in order to deal a fatal blow to the Union Army. Lee’s right hand man was the loyal General Longstreet. Opposing them was General George Meade. In the four most bloody and courageous days of the Civil War, their armies fought, one side for freedom and the other side for tradition.
