Booknotes: Don't Give an Inch

New Arrival:
Don't Give an Inch: The Second Day at Gettysburg, July 2, 1863 by Chris Mackowski, Kristopher D. White, and Daniel T. Davis (Savas Beatie, 2016).

This Emerging Civil War volume contains a compact narrative and integrated tour of the major Day 2 events – Longstreet's flank march, Little Round Top, Devil's Den, the Wheatfield, the Peach Orchard, and Cemetery Ridge. The four appendices consist of a Wheatfield walking tour, a reassessment of Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain as LRT hero, another look at the famous Devil's Den sharpshooter, and the Sickles-Meade controversy.
