Ive owned this book for almost 20 years. It was a gift from a friend who had developed immense expertise on the removal of the Confederate dead from the Gettysburg battlefield. He knew that several of my forebears were present in that battle on the Confederate side in the 15th Alabama regiment, under the command of then Colonel William Oates.

I had read Mark Perrys CONCEIVED IN LIBERTY: JOSHUA CHAMBERLAIN, WILLIAM OATES, & THE AMERICAN CIVIL WAR when it was published in 1997, and more recently Glenn LaFantasies TWILIGHT AT LITTLE ROUND TOP: JULY 2, 1863--THE TIDE TURNS AT GETTYSBURG. It was in reading LaFantasies account of the clash between Oatess and Chamberlains men on the south slope of the hill that I thought to open Oatess book and see how he describe the battle. I found it far better written than Id expected, recognized that he had in writing it engaged in dialogue with those whod been his allies and those whod been his enemies.

I will continue to delve into the book, and now for much more than Oatess brief paragraphs on the four brothers of my 3great-grandfather who served under his command.
