Lee Is Trapped And Must Be Taken: Eleven Fateful Days After Gettysburg, July 4-14, 1863
- Civil War
In the aftermath of Gettysburg
Countless books have examined the battle of Gettysburg, but the retreat of the armies to the Potomac River and beyond has not been as thoroughly covered. Lee is Trapped and Must be Taken goes a long way toward rectifying this oversight.
This comprehensive book focuses on the post-battle events and addresses how Maj. Gen. Meade organized his Army of the Potomac in response to Lincoln’s mandate to bring about the “literal or substantial destruction” of Gen. Lee’s retreating Army of Northern Virginia.
The authors utilized a host of primary sources to craft their study, including letters, memoirs, diaries, official reports, newspapers, and telegrams, and have threaded these intelligence gems into an exciting and fast-paced narrative.
