summary
A telling assessment of the myths and facts surrounding the most famous single military event of the Civil War. "Quite apart from its notable historical interest, Ms. Reardon's work is a splendidly lively study of the manipulation, not necessarily deliberate or malign, of public opinion."--Atlantic Monthly
