Product Description

Product Description

In the league of great military memoirs, which includes such works as Barry Fixler's Semper Cool: One Marine's Fond Memories of Vietnam, this account of the Battle of Gettysburg by then Lieutenant Frank A. Haskell is one of the most moving, and honest accounts of battle ever written.

Gettysburg: A Lovely Summer Morning is a compilation of vintage civil war photos, Lincoln's Gettysburg Address, and a letter written by Franklin Aretas Haskell, Aide-de-camp to General John Gibbon. Haskell's letter was first published in 1898 as a book entitled The Battle of Gettysburg. Haskell wrote the letter to his brother shortly after his participation in the Battle of Gettysburg. He did not intend for it to be published commercially.

3.0 out of 5 stars I have become a Gettysburg junkie 15 July 2012
Verified Purchase
This is the umpteenth book on Gettysburg and the Civil War in general that I have on my shelves - almost all purchased from Amazon. Although it adds little to other accounts, it is eminently readable, once again conveying the horror of battle. My interest in the subject came from viewing the film 'Gettysburg' on TCM. Let me point anyone who has not had the pleasure to Amazon's DVD/Film lists where Ted Turner's two epic films can be found - at irrestible prices.

Although written in the prose of the age, Mid 19th century, it is stll readable. By that I do not mean it is written as a tragic novel. It is essentially a reference book that can used by many disciplines.

3.5 would be more accurate.
An intriguing first hand account of the epic battle of Gettysburg.
Definitely worth a read given the price.
Would I read it again? Probably not.
