To be sure, historians have uncovered much about the battle of Gettysburg and its 160,000 participants. Author Richard A. Sauers approaches the conflict from a unique angle, however, examining the roots of a bitter dispute that arose when Union general Daniel Sickles advanced his regiment without consulting his commanding officer, General George B. Meade. While Sauers is unapologetic in his defense of Meade, he does so in an effort to reveal the truth about the controversy and the battle itself.
