Battle of Falling Waters 1863: Custer, Pettigrew
and the End of the Gettysburg Campaign 

Many historians agree the Gettysburg Campaign concluded with the Battle of Falling Waters, Maryland, on July 14, 1863. Although not the climactic battle of the war desired by President Abraham Lincoln, it remains a story of miscalculation, bravery, larger-than-life personalities, tragedy and a cover-up. This new book tells the story of that final battle and includes an intriguing tale about veterans of the Battle of Falling Waters, Maryland decades after the rear guard of the General Robert E. Lee’s Army of Northern Virginia clashed with a large force of Union cavalry. The book concludes with a detailed description of the battlefield today and efforts to preserve portions of the land for future generations.
Author George F. Franks, III has made extensive use of first-hand accounts, detailed maps, period drawings and photographs to breathe life into the crucial yet little remembered end of the Gettysburg Campaign and is well worth reading by Civil War buffs !!!
