Gettysburg : a meditation on war and values by Kent Gramm( Book )

8 editions published between 1994 and 1997 in English and held by 549 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is, in effect, the story of two battlefields: Gettysburg during July 1863 and Gettysburg during the 1990s. Following Thoreau's dictum that "it is the province of the historian to find out, not what was, but what is," the author has searched for contemporary America among the famous places of Gettysburg's historic landscape: McPherson's Woods and the Seminary, where the Iron Brigade made its decisive last stand and defined the economics of glory; the town itself, now a monument to the grim struggle of the past and the commercialism of the present; Cemetery Hill, where German gunners defended their pieces with rammers, water buckets, and unintelligible oaths; Seminary Ridge, where a young division commander pondered the meaning of the war and the will of God; Little Round Top, where the 15th Alabama nearly accomplished the humanly impossible; the Peach Orchard, where determination and heroism saved a day that, in the words of Bruce Catton, "needed a lot of saving"; the wheat field, where a Yankee colonel got a deathly glimpse of his future; the field of Pickett's Charge, where Lee's chief lieutenant first had to fight out his own lonely battle, and where a doomed and disgraced general then fought and won his battle with history and honor; and finally the battlefield after July 4 - the aceldama, the field of blood

Sharpsburg : a civil war narrative by Kent Gramm( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Civil War, sometimes called ""The American Iliad, "" is an epic of violence, rage, bravery, and love, whose echoes still can be heard. America's bloodiest day was September 17, 1862--the Battle of Antietam, or Sharpsburg, which enabled President Lincoln to issue a proclamation freeing all slaves in the rebellious states. The battle's story is told here by two soldiers: a Yankee, who fights for union, justice, and equality; and a Rebel, for whom the war is a battle for freedom. Both voices still haunt today's struggles over race, rights, and the flag
Psalms for the Poor by Kent Gramm( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Psalms for the Poor talk back to the blunt and beautiful phrases of the King James Bible. Sometimes personal, sometimes political, the original Psalms complain, question, curse, and adore: ""Why do the wicked prosper?"" ""When I consider the moon and the stars, "" ""My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?"" ""The Lord is my shepherd, "" ""But I am poor and needy."" Luther's last words were, ""We are beggars."" These poems are for the world's poor, and for the pauper in each of us
