Guelzo seeks to tell the story of Gettysburg and debunk what he feels are inaccuracies that have permeated the history of that battle. No, it wasn't Jeb Stuart's fault. No, Joshua Chamberlain was not the sole hero of Little Round Top--he wasn't even the primary hero; etc. I'm no historian, so can't judge the validity of his arguments, except to say that the reasoning he presents sounds good. The book is highly readable. And in the final chapter, the author soars.
