Based on an exhibition for University of South Carolina students reading Michael Shaara's bestselling book The Killer Angels, this catalogue recounts the story of the battle of Gettysburg day by day, with an opening section introducing the major participants and a final section dealing with the commemoration of the battle and its treatment in later American literature. All the items in the exhibition are drawn from the Francis A. Lord Civil War Collection and the Robert S. Chamberlain Military History Collection, both in Rare Books & Special Collections, University of South Carolina Libraries.
