"MY FAVORITE HISTORICAL NOVEL...A superb re-creation of the Battle
of Gettysburg, but its real importance is its insight into what the war

"REMARKABLE...A BOOK THAT CHANGED MY LIFE...I had never visited
Gettysburg, knew almost nothing about that battle before I read the book,
but here it all came alive."
--Ken Burns, filmmaker The Civil War
The Killer Angels is unique, sweeping, unforgettable--a dramatic re-creation
of the battleground for America's destiny.
