Gettysburg: A Guided Tour through History

by Randi Minetor

From the publisher:
Walk through the battlefields of Gettysburg and Antietam with those who lived and fought there. Move through time with the characters and events that shaped Washington,D.C., as we know it today. Visit the National Cemetery in Arlington following a timeline of American wars to learn more about the people who are buried there. This book brings readers face-to-face with the people and events that have shaped history and who have left their mark on some of the most popular and interesting landmarks and locations. Each of these full-size historical guides comes with two oversized Pop Out maps - one, an archival map, and the other, showing the samelocation today. A timeline runs with the text, adding context and texture to the history described.
