James Hessler on "Sickles at Gettysburg"


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.
