About this title:

Synopsis: The Battle of Gettysburg (1-3 July, 1863), has become one of the most analysed battles in military history, but until now there has never been a detailed examination of the actual firearms used.The battle was a watershed, with weapons technologies representing past, present, and future - sabres, smoothbore rifles, and breechloaders - in action alongside each other for the first and last time."Small Arms at Gettysburg" is a comprehensive and fascinating examination of the individual weapons used during the battle - muskets, rifle-muskets, carbines, repeaters, sharpshooter arms, and swords - providing a detailed history as well as looking at how their deployment during the battle affected its outcome.

About the Author: Joseph Bilby is the assistant curator at the National Guard Militia Museum in New Jersey. He is also a regular columnist to the popular Civil War News.

Book Description Westholme Publishing, 2007. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. First Edition. 294 pages, illustrations, cloth, DJ, very good. From the DJ: "The three-day battle of Gettysburg has probably been the subject of more books and articles than any other comparable event. Surprisingly, until this work, no one has analyzed the firearms and other individual soldier's weapons used at Gettysburg in any great detail. The battle was a watershed, with military weapons technologies representing the past, present, and future--sabers, smoothbores, rifles, and breechloaders--in action alongside each other, providing a unique opportunity to compare performance and use, as well as determining how particular weapons and their deployment affected the outcome and course of the battle. SMALL ARMS AT GETTYSBURG: INFANTRY AND CAVALRY WEAPONS IN AMERICA'S GREATEST BATTLE covers all of the individual soldier's weapons--muskets, rifle-muskets, carbines, repeaters, sharpshooter arms, revolvers, and swords--providing a detailed examination of their history and development, technology, capabilities, and use on the field at Gettysburg. Here we learn that the smoothbore musket, although beloved by some who carried it, sang its swan song, the rifle-musket began to come into its own, and the repeating rifle, although tactically mishandled, gave a glimpse of future promise. This is the story of the weapons and men who carried them into battle during three days in July 1863." ; 9.20 X 6 X 1.20 inches; 294 pages. Bookseller Inventory # 39991
