Union Casualties at Gettysburg: A Comprehensive Record (3 vols.)

Authors: Travis W. Busey & John W. Busey

Union Casualties at Gettysburg: A Comprehensive Record by John W. Busey and Travis W. BuseyTOCWOC’s Take:
John W. Busey is no stranger to Gettysburg, having previously produced These Honored Dead: The Union Casualties at Gettysburg on his own and the famous (and often updated) Regimental Strengths and Losses at Gettysburg with David G. Martin.  This time around, Busey teams with Travis W. Busey in an updated version of his earlier work on Union casualties at this most famous of Civil War battles.  As the title suggests, the Buseys list every single Union casualty at the Battle of Gettysburg by company and regiment or by generals and staffs of parent units.  Libraries will probably be the main buyer here, and while this large three volume paperback set is not for everyone, TOCWOC readers whose main interest lies in researching all aspects of the Battle of Gettysburg may want to spend the money required to own this reference work.
