Book Breaks with Allen Guelzo and Gettysburg: The Last Invasion
Gilder Lehrman Book Breaks features the most exciting historians in America discussing their books with host William Roka live, followed by a Q&A with home audiences.

Join us online on Sunday, July 5 from 2:00 to 2:45 p.m. ET (11: 00 to 11:45 a.m. PT) with Allen Guelzo, as he discusses his book "Gettysburg: The Last Invasion."

The Battle of Gettysburg has been written about at length and thoroughly dissected in terms of strategic importance, but never before has a book taken readers so close to the experience of the individual soldier.

Two-time Lincoln Prize winner Allen C. Guelzo shows us the face, the sights and the sounds of nineteenth-century combat: the stone walls and gunpowder clouds of Pickett’s Charge; the reason that the Army of Northern Virginia could be smelled before it could be seen; the march of thousands of men from the banks of the Rappahannock in Virginia to the Pennsylvania hills. What emerges is a previously untold story of army life in the Civil War: from the personal politics roiling the Union and Confederate officer ranks, to the peculiar character of artillery units. Through such scrutiny, one of history’s epic battles is given extraordinarily vivid new life.
