"Here at last is the long-anticipated revised edition of one of the most respected and popular guides to the Gettysburg National Military Park. The authors have made significant changes to the guide, addressing alterations to the park during the past fifteen years and adding new information and improved maps that enrich park visitors’ understanding of one of the bloodiest and most momentous battles in American history."

Guide to the Battle of Gettysburg, the Second Edition, Revised and Expanded, was edited by Jay Luvaas, Harold W. Nelson and Leonard J. Fullenkamp.

The late Jay Luvaas was a history professor at the U.S. Army History Institute and U.S. Army War College. Harold W. Nelson, a retired brigadier general, is a former U.S. Army Chief of Military History. Leonard J. Fullenkamp is professor of military history and strategy at the U.S. Army War College and director of its Staff Rides program. The new volume was published by the University Press of Kansas.


  1. I visited Gettysburg a year ago and walked the battlefield. This book would have been very helpful.

  2. Never been there. Always wondered why the Eisenhowers settled there, after his offer for a house in Abilene was rejected.
