    1. Long Remember has been long forgotten MacKinlay Kantor s 1934 novel, which chronicles the Civil War s Pennsylvania Campaign and Battle of Gettysburg from the perspective of Gettysburg civilians unlucky enough to be in Gettysburg on those three crucial days of July 1 3, 1863, caused quite a splash in its time it was a Literary Guild main selection, and no less an authority than Allen Tate praised its battlefield realism Yet while Kantor s later Civil War novel Andersonville 1955 won the Pulitzer [...]

    2. Recently having read both Ralph Peters two recently published civil war novels Cain at Gettysburg and Hell or Richmond, I had a fairly good understanding of how the three days of the Battle of Gettysburg progressed from the perspective of the participants This helped immensely when reading Long Remember because the viewpoint changed from that of the officers and soldiers to the impact on the citizens of the community of Gettysburg I also believe it is important to understand that MacKinlay Kanto [...]

    3. An unpleasant but realistic picture of Gettysburg and war in general No particular character was wonderful, all had flaws An extremely well written and thought provoking book.

    4. This is a great book, but I didn t love it like Andersonville The reasons I didn t love it have nothing to do with any flaws in the book MacKinlay Kantor did such a great job of the love relationship between Dan and Irene at the beginning of the book that I wanted of them and less of other characters and I also wanted of their relationship development and so I couldn t quite get into the drama of the battle at Gettysburg But that is, of course, not really a flaw in the book The fact that a lov [...]

    5. I liked this book very much It was an early book by him, 1934, so he was able to interview survivors and soliders that were yet still alive adding to the realistic portrayal of the events at Gettysburg I enjoyed it because it also told civilians stories, not just battles The ending rather baffles me though because it is not what I expected Daniel to do after he had seen the war first hand and been in the trenches.

    6. This was a good book dealing with the Battle of Gettysburg from the perspective of the civilians who had to deal with the chaos that the battle brought to them The characters represented the whole spectrum of thoughts about the war and the interactions and personal lives of those characters connected in ways not imagined How the war affects outcomes in the book is also intriguing Good read for Civil War buffs.

    7. Man opposed to Civil War heads to Gettysburg on family business in July 1863 Hilarity ensues Well, not hilarity Action ensues I appreciated that the pace picked up with each page It didn t slow down for the conclusion, though Might have needed a big the end on the last page.

    8. Bob thinks it was trashy, but it is an incredibly detailed accounting of the Battle of Gettysburg Civil War geeks take note.
