"In Catton's Introduction, he states that the book 'is valuable in two ways. First of all, this Union officer was on the staff of the divisional commander who held the precise part of the Federal line against which was directed the most famous military assault in American history, Pickett's Charge. During all of it, he was in the exact storm center; and in this account, with the heat of battle still on him...he tells just what happened there, under the battle smoke that must always dim the sight of later generations..."

2 Catton, Bruce This Hallowed Ground :The Story of the Union Side of the Civil War
Garden City, New York Doubleday 1956 Limited First Edition Hard Cover SIGNED by the Author
In Good+ condition. Gray cloth quarterbound in teal blue leatherette. The spine is stamped in gilt and black; the front panel in gilt. Quarto. Blue topstain. Map-endpapers. ix + 437pps. No dustjacket (as issued). There are touches of soiling to the cloth and the leatherette has been cracked (though repaired) along the front joint. Otherwise clean, bright, square, and soundly bound.

"This fascinating book tells the story of the Civil War as seen from the Union side. Through his brilliant and stirring narrative, Bruce Catton conveys the human aspect of history and translates meticulously researched historical fact into an absorbing chronicle of the war. 'This Hallowed Ground' deals with the entire scope of the Civil War -- from the months of unrest and hysteria that led to Fort Sumter to the days of tragedy and hope that followed Appomattox. Along with the author, readers will relive the shock and shell and glory of the war. The true greatness of this book, however, lies in Catton's deeply moving analysis of the issues, and his search for the true meaning of the conflict."
