3 Im­per­fect Union

USA TODAY Weekend Extra - - BOOKS -

by Chuck Raasch (Stack­pole, non-fic­tion, on sale Satur­day) Re­counts story WHAT IT’S ABOUT: of New York Times cor­re­spon­dent Sam Wilke­son, who wrote a fa­mous dis­patch from Get­tys­burg af­ter learn­ing that his son, a Union lieu­tenant, had died in the bat­tle.

Comes THE BUZZ: with a rec­om­men­da­tion from Ken Burns (The Civil War): “An im­por­tant book, one that con­tains both an aerial and in­ti­mate view of the hu­man cost of the great­est bat­tle ever fought in North Amer­ica.”
