The 151st Pennsylvania Volunteers At Gettysburg: Like Ripe Apples In A Storm Reviews
My great-great-great grandfather fought with the 151st Pa. Volunteers as part of Company C. I bought this book in the gift shop at the Seminary Ridge Museum in Gettysburg, seeking a better understanding of where the regiment was before, during and after the battle.Dreese does an excellent job with explaining the role of the 151st in some of the fiercest fighting on July 1 and July 3. He also spends a great deal of effort in exploring General McFarland's history.The chapters of hospital scenes and the experiences of the prisoners contained interesting details, but got a bit long.There is an appendix listing the casualties of the 151st; however, there is no list of all the members.
