Booknotes: The Last Road North

New Arrival:
The Last Road North: A Guide to the Gettysburg Campaign, 1863 by Robert Orrison and Dan Welch (Savas Beatie, 2016).

This ECW volume eschews the typical appendix collection to make room for an ambitious mini-tour of the entire Gettysburg Campaign. It covers the Confederate advance into Pennsylvania (including Stuart's Ride), a very brief sketch of the battle itself (which is not part of the tour), and the fighting retreat, with a multitude of tour stops for each chapter [26 for the Confederate advance, 23 for the Union reaction, and 12 for the retreat].
