CHECK IT OUT: The Crestview Public Library as a meeting place

Published: Tuesday, July 16, 2013 at 03:18 PM.

Many works detailing the battle are considered one of the war’s major turning points, and Guezlo’s work will surely be included among the list of this bloody battle’s great accounts. The writer’s work brings to life the grittiness, loss and suffering of those who fought.

Also recommended is the movie "Gettysburg," starring Martin Sheen and Jeff Daniels. It is based on Jeff Shaara’s acclaimed novel, "The Killer Angels." Both are available at the library.
