Covered with Glory is an extraordinary recreation of this tremendous three-day battle told through the eyes of the men who fought it. Rod Gragg creates intimate portraits of these soldiers, detailing their family histories, relationships, combat experience -- and excruciating lack of it -- as they prepared for battle and fought. Joining the pantheon of critically acclaimed works on the Civil War, Covered with Glory is a spell-binding, personal look at one of the most brutal battles in American history.
