Dr. David Martin's "New Jersey at Gettysburg" Guidebookis a welcome and timely addition to our Civil War literature. Few visitors to Gettysburg realize that New Jersey had the sixth largest contingent of Union soldiers at Gettysburg and fewer still know what these Jersey boys did here. New Jersey infantry regiments took horrific casualties trying to stop Longstreet's assault on Day 2. On the same day a New Jersey artillery battery fired off more rounds of ammunition than any other Union battery in the Civil War in one day. A New Jersey cavalry regiment assisted in repulsing JEB Stuart’s Confederate horsemen on Day 3 while New Jersey infantrymen helped turn back Pickett’s famous charge.The splendid maps, photos, and narrative will allow you to follow in the footsteps of each New Jersey unit, showing their monuments, their movements and where they fought. It will also give you a brief history of the unit and where in New Jersey it was raised. This unique book will appeal not only to the casual visitor but to the serious student of the battle as well. It has arrived just in time for the 150th anniversary of the battle. - John Winkelman, Gettysburg Licensed Battlefield Guide
