details of the books by Hewitt and Edmonds. Hewitt's book presents
thorough coverage of the campaign through the aftermath of the May 27,
1863, assault. It was his intention to do a second volume completing
the story, but he has not done so yet. Edmonds' volumes go into
greater depth than Cunningham or Hewitt, but they are not without
small errors of fact, and they lack analysis.
