Now the review…
“Keith Jones “Georgia Remembers Gettysburg” is an outstanding book of the memories, first hand accounts, and reports from the Confederate Soldiers who fought at Gettysburg from July 1 to July 3, 1863. The author begins by describing the events that led to the Battle of Gettysburg and the soldiers from Georgia who marched thru Maryland and Pennsylvania. Jones researched letters, diaries, reports, and Confederate Veteran Magazines and put them in this book about the soldiers from Georgia and their stories and memories about the battle. These soldiers suffered some horrific deaths and woundings and lost friends, brothers, and fellow Georgians. Stories of Georgians captured at Gettysburg are also in this fine book. There are a wide variety of memories, accounts, that are first hand from these soldiers and it is fascinating to read what they experienced. At the end of the book there are stories of how former enemies became life-long friends and met at Civil War Veterans reunions and the speech given by General James Longstreet is a fitting and poignant tribute to all the soldiers of the Civil War and how they became “brother in arms” after the war.
Keith Jones is to be commended for an outstanding book that is a worthy addition to the Battle of Gettysburg. This is a fine addition to the history of the battle and it is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for anyone who is interested in the Battle of Gettysburg and the Civil War!”
