History Book Club

Wednesday December 17, 2014
6:30 PM

Welcome to the first meeting of our newly-formed History Book club. Our first selection is Killer Angels by Michael Shaara.

Portraits of Lee, Longstreet, and other Civil War leaders are interwoven with historical detail to provide a fictional recreation of the bloody battle at Gettysburg. A superb re-creation of the Battle of Gettysburg, but its real importance is its insight into what the war was about, and what it meant. In the four most bloody and courageous days of our nation’s history, two armies fought for two dreams. One dreamed of freedom, the other of a way of life.Far more than rifles and bullets were carried into battle. There were memories. There were promises. There was love. And far more than men fell on those Pennsylvania fields. Shattered futures, forgotten innocence, and crippled beauty were also the casualties of war.  Publisher summary.

Copies are available at the Main Desk. Sign up today!
