Though this book is very long it holds you with every chapter. It is very in depth with first hand accounts to put to rest over a century of myth and misunderstanding.

The story of Pickett’s Charge was only one part of a three day battle but was the defining moment of the battle and like many battles before was close to being a victory

Well worth the read and the narration is easy to listen to and the first hand accounts make the story come to life.

Myth shattering

Wow so much information not only about the raid and the days around it but a full history of the town from humble beginnings to seat of kings. All I thought I knew was challenge with evidence and the pace of the story kept you hooked. The appendix provide modern information and figures that shed light on the reasons we think we know so much but that we truly only know a little. Great read!

Amazing story from the true Americans. How through "rascally" ways white settlers and successive government ignored treaties and broke promises to steal Indian land and lives. To hear the voices of those Indians who's names have become legends as evil savages and how they where in fact great leaders pushed to extremes.

I could not stop listening to this book and spent long nights listening to it.
