Patterson takes up his narrative where most histories of Gettysburg close by chronicling the plight of the more than 21,000 Union and Confederate troops left wounded and dying on the battlefield after their armies had retreated. It was the substantial contributions of aid from civilians from both near and far that prevented thousands more from perishing.
