Pickett's charge in history and memory by Carol Reardon( Book )
9 editions published between 1997 and 2011 in English and held by 943 libraries worldwide

The Gettysburg campaign : June--July 1863 by Carol Reardon( Book )
2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 415 libraries worldwide
"The Battle of Gettysburg attained a special aura that has distinguished it ever since. Boston journalist Charles Carleton Coffin dubbed it "the high water mark" of the rebellion, while others described it as the "turning point of the war." But it was President Lincoln who most eloquently expressed Gettysburg's significance. On 19 November 1863, Lincoln delivered "a few appropriate remarks" at the dedication of the Soldiers' National Cemetery that became known as the Gettysburg Address: "We here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain-that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom-and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth." --p. 61

With a sword in one hand & Jomini in the other : the problem of military thought in the Civil War north by Carol Reardon( Book )
5 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 214 libraries worldwide
"Reardon examines the great profusion of new or newly translated military texts of the Civil War years ... and draws as well on the view of the soldiers and civilians who turned to them in the search for a winning strategy. In examining how debates over principles of military thought entered into the question of qualifications of officers entrusted to command the armies of Northern citizen-soldiers, she explores the limitations of nineteenth-century military thought in dealing with the human elements of combat"--Jacket
Ulysses S. Grant and the Battle of the Wilderness ( visu )
1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 115 libraries worldwide
"At the beginning of the Civil War, Ulysses S. Grant worked in a store. Within 4 years he commanded the Union Armies and within 8 he was President of the United States. The Battle of the Wilderness was an indecisive, bloody tangle in a dense forest. Though a tactical stalemate, it was a vital strategic victory--one which led to the defeat of the Confederacy."
