Kerry Hotaling's most recent work, "The Yankees Had Something To Do With It", is a narrative, exclusively about the high command of the Union Army during the Gettysburg campaign.
The story begins with the Union Army's failure at the battle of Chancellorsville in May 1863. Union General Joe Hooker is feeling the heat from Washington after another Union failure against Robert E. Lee and the Army of Northern Virginia. A victorious Lee makes a move toward the North and panic sets in the Union Army and in Washington,DC. The politicians in Washington have no confidence in Hooker, so they decide to make another change a top. They select General George Meade to take command of the Army of the Potomac.
This compelling story unfolds as Meade is thrown into the fire just days before the two armies collide in the little town of Gettysburg, PA. The entire dialogue is focused on the strategies, division and regiment placement, and the politics behind the scenes of the Yankee command. Meade evolves into the central character in this story. You can feel his anxiety and his frustrations as the battle unfolds with some of his staff, some of his subordinates and the positions of the Army. You know who is working with him and who isn't. It becomes a human story, not just a battle story, not just a chronology, it becomes about the people who made the history. I could visualize the scenes perfectly in my mind. It transforms you into their era and that's when you know your reading a well written history story. The descriptions of the field and the movements are outstanding. I have read numerous books on Gettysburg and Hotaling's descriptions of the placements and the field are easily the best I have read.
Great work and I there is more to come. ( )
