What Was the Battle of Gettysburg?
Inspired by the popular Who Was…? series, the What Was…? titles focus on key events that have shaped history: great battles, protests, discoveries, and revolutions!
“Four score and seven years ago…” begins Abraham Lincoln’s beautiful speech commemorating the three-day battle that turned the tide of the Civil War. The South had been winning up to this point. So how did Union troops stop General Robert E. Lee’s invasion of the North? With black-and-illustrations throughout, this turning point in history is brought vividly to life.
