Gettysburg Battles That Changed the World
$4.95

Explains the events leading up to the Battle of Gettysburg, the defining battle of the Civil War, and describes the battle and its aftermath.

Marathon, Hastings, Midway -- just a few of the major battles covered in this series, which introduces readers to the wartime engagements that changed the course of human history. Each book gives a historical account of a decisive battle -- its participants, the political climate leading to the engagement, and the deciding factors that ultimately led to a victory or defeat. The furthest northern advance by the Confederates was met with their defeat by Union forces, a defeat that was a harbinger of the South's eventual surrender.
