SILENT SENTINELS: A Reference Guide to the Artillery at Gettysburg 

“Silent Sentinels” discusses in detail every gun-type of artillery used at Gettysburg, the equipment needed to operate the guns, their organization, and the tactics employed by both Union and Confederate artillerymen. In addition to a history of the artillery and how it was used, the author includes chapters on the park’s collection of 436 guns, the pieces on display at the field today, how to identify the different types of cannon, and how to identify the date and place of manufacture.
The book concludes with a driving tour of the battlefield, specially designed with the artillery in mind. This well-written historical guide, complete with detailed endnotes and bibliography, will be a welcome addition to any Battle of Gettysburg buff’s library.
