Pickett's charge in history and memory by Carol Reardon( Book )
8 editions published between 1997 and 2011 in English and held by 1,047 libraries worldwide
In this book, Reardon shows that the story told today of Pickett's Charge is really an amalgam of history and memory. The evolution of that mix, she concludes, tells us much about how we come to understand our nation's past
The Gettysburg campaign : June--July 1863 by Carol Reardon( Book )
2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 638 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 )
6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 360 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 60 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."

If, as many have argued, the Civil War was the most crucial moment in our national life and Gettysburg its turning point, then a central moment in our nation's history is Pickett's Charge

Telling the Army story : voices of Gettysburg's slain by Carol Reardon( visu )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
At the end of three days of bloody fighting around the town of Gettysburg on July 1-3, 1863, over 7,000 soldiers from the Army of the Potomac and the Army of Northern Virginia lay dead upon the battlefield. Over the next six months, several thousand more died of their wounds, sealing their commitment to their respective causes with lives. But death did not silence their voices. Their surgeons, their comrades-in-arms, and their families mourning them in cities and towns stretching from the coasts of Maine to the hill country of Texas picked up the soldiers' stories and shared their lessons with us. Some of the most profound of those voices emerge from the pension applications submitted by new widows and newly-appointed guardians of fatherless children, by bereaved mothers and even -- on occasion -- by their fathers. The families of Confederate dead could submit claims to collect a one-time payment of all pay and allotments still due their fallen soldier. In the North, the Congress passed legislation in July 1862 to establish a pension system for the support of the survivors of fallen Union soldiers, but it could not have foreseen the complications and challenges each individual case might present for its highly legalistic administrative processes for the awarding of a monthly support check usually amounting to $8 for the families of enlisted men. The families and friends of the Gettysburg slain tell yet one more important -- and underappreciated -- part of the Army Story
