James Hessler on "Sickles at Gettysburg"

March 11, 2012

We might not have the perfect definition of the word “scoundrel” but we can certainly agree on one thing – Civil War General and US Congressman Daniel Sickles was the epitome of a scoundrel. Seriously. Check out this list:  murder, political corruption, affairs with queens and prostitutes… and there’s more than meets the eye about that leg he lost at Gettysburg.

James Hessler is a Civil War Guide at Gettysburg and the author of “Sickles at Gettysburg.” He filled in all the details, and then some.

This is the blood in my veins!

Great interview. Excellent book, too.

una donna di origine italiana la cui famiglia è ancora presente nella citta' di Cesena.
Per noi queste vicende sono state scoperte solo recentemente ,
ma ritengo che un libro sulla storia di Sickles avrebbe successo anche in Italia.
segnalo il sito www.coroalboni.it dove si cita il caso Sickles Bagioli.
