Retreat From Gettysburg – soft cover




In a ground-breaking, comprehensive history of the Army of Northern Virginia’s retreat from Gettysburg in July 1863, Brown draws on previously unknown materials to chronicle the massive effort of General Robert E. Lee and his army as they sought to move fifty-seven miles of quartermaster, subsistence, ordnance and ambulance trains and tens of thousands of seized horses, mules, cattle, sheep and other livestock across the South Mountain Range to and across the Potomac River while no less than three Union armies, particularly General George G. Meade’s Army of The Potomac, were closing in.
