The riveting saga of a nation at war with itselfa€”from the Union Armya€™s disaster at Fredericksburg to its costly triumph at Gettysburga€”by Pulitzer Prizea€“winning Civil War chronicler Bruce Catton In the second book of the Army of the Potomac Trilogy, Bruce Cattona€”one of Americaa€™s most honored Civil War historiansa€”once again brings the great battles and the men who fought them to breathtaking life. As the War Between the States moved through its second bloody year, General Ambrose Burnside was selected by President Lincoln to replace the ineffectual George a€œLittle Maca€ McClellan as commander of the Union Army. But the hope that greeted Burnsidea€™s ascension was quickly dashed in December 1862 in the wake of his devastating defeat at Fredericksburg. Following Burnsidea€™s exit, a mediocre new commander, Joseph a€œFighting Joea€ Hooker, turned a sure victory into tragedy at Chancellorsville, continuing the Uniona€™s woes and ensuring Robert E. Leea€™s greatest triumph of the war. But the tide began to turn over the course of three days in July 1863, when the Union won a decisive victory on the battlefield of Gettysburg. Months later, Lincoln would give his historic address on this ground, honoring the fallen soldiers and strengthening the Union Armya€™s resolve to fight for a united and equal nation for all of its people. With brilliant insight, color, and detail, Catton interweaves thrilling narratives of combat with remarkable portrayals of politics and life on the home front. Glory Road is a sweeping account of extraordinary bravery and shocking incompetence during what were arguably the wara€™s darkest days.access roads were corduroyed. ...
