The Union Army at Gettysburg: Great Leadership from Unexpected Places with Licensed Battlefield Guide Darryl Roberts
Decisions on the battlefield do not happen in a vacuum, the leaders of the Union Army that are known today as heroes of the Gettysburg Battlefield were influenced by their life experiences prior to July 1863. This program will not only delve into the stories of several Union officers here at Gettysburg but into how their lives prior to the war may have led them to such heroic actions on the battlefield.
