Complete, detailed, and up-to-date, the book rectifies the "standard" Gettysburg tour by providing crucial monuments, markers, battle actions, town sites, hospital locations, and other hidden historical gems that shouldn't be overlooked. It presents detailed driving and walking tours of the entire battlefield (including obscure sites that even veteran visitors miss or never hear about); a tour of every identified field hospital site for both armies; tours of the National Cemetery and the town's Evergreen Cemetery; a tour of the town of Gettysburg, including sites of historical interest before and after the battle; outlying battlefields including the June 26, 1863 skirmish site, East Cavalry Field, South Cavalry Field, Hunterstown, Hanover, and Fairfield; and a special tour of the various rock carvings on the battlefield, many of which were created by returning veterans and pre-date most of the monuments.
