Description
Information
The 26th North Carolina Infantry at Gettysburg

In late June, 1863, one of the largest regiments in General Lee's army - led by the charismatic 21-year-old Colonel Henry King Burwyn, Jr - arrived at Gettysburg, where, after a valiant and legendary fight, they suffered an 85% casualty rate - the highest of any regiment during the entire Civil War. 'Covered with Glory' is an extraordinary recreation of this tremendous three-day battle told through the eyes of the men who fought it. Rod Cragg 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 spellbinding, personal look at one of the most brutal battles in American history.
