[url="http://www.brettschulte.net/CWBlog/best-civil-war-books/top-10-gettysburg-books-civil-war-bloggers/"]Ten Civil War bloggers (including me) are listing their own top 10 Gettysburg books[/url] over the course of the three day anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg. The idea is to take these lists and combine them into one comprehensive list which will serve as a nice "go to page" for those looking to get into the study of the Battle of Gettysburg. Feel free to add your own Top 10 Gettysburg books in the comments section here and at the link provided!

The bloggers participating include:

Ethan Rafuse of Civil Warriors
Mark Grimsley of Civil Warriors
Eric Wittenberg of Rantings of a Civil War Historian
Drew Wagenhoffer of Civil War Books and Authors
John Hoptak of The 48th Pennsylvania Infantry/Civil War Musings
Harry Smeltzer of Bull Runnings
Craig Swain of To the Sound of the Guns
Nick Kurtz of Battlefield Wanderings
Chris Wehner of Blog 4 History
Brett Schulte of TOCWOC - A Civil War Blog

Drex,

I did a Top 5 on Antietam all by my lonesome earlier this year:

I do plan to ask the bloggers who participated this time around (and others) to do this again sometime. I've had a great time putting this together!

<br />Coddington is still my favorite with David Martin's First Day right behind it.

Glad to see those two books getting their just due.

Bill,

both are excellent books, and both are in my top 1o, the last one to come out. It'll roll on Friday morning. Look for a comprehensive list combining everyone's lists on Tuesday.
