Recommends it for: history buffs!
This book is a consolidation of various articles, journals and diaries by citizens of Gettysburg. From before the actual Battle of Gettysburg, until after Lincoln's address...this is very moving history of their experiences. Definitely something for the history buffs or for those who wonder how the citizenry lived and survived and cared during this horrific time in their lives.
