Feb. 18, 7 p.m. "The Killer Angels" by Michael Shaara

Lynn will lead the discussion...

Overview



“My favorite historical novel . . . a superb re-creation of the Battle of Gettysburg, but its real importance is its insight into what the war was about, and what it meant.”—James M. McPherson







In the four most bloody and courageous days of our nation’s history, two armies fought for two conflicting dreams. One dreamed of freedom, the other of a way of life. Far more than rifles and bullets were carried into battle. There were memories. There were promises. There was love. And far more than men fell on those Pennsylvania fields. Bright futures, untested innocence, and pristine beauty were also the casualties of war. Michael Shaara’s Pulitzer Prize–winning masterpiece is unique, sweeping, unforgettable—the dramatic story of the battleground for America’s destiny.

    Sorry I can't come. I'll be with my grandkids, though, for SKI WEEK! I loved Shaara's interpretation of Gettysburg. His beautiful description of the landscape and human strengths and failures gave me a clearer understanding of that battle.
