For a battle that has been combed over and over and over by historians it is hard to imagine that anything original could be said about Gettysburg, but Mark Dunkelman has defied the skeptics in Gettysburg's Coster Avenue: The Brickyard Fight and the Mural. In smooth and compelling prose, Dunkelman recount the stand of a single Union Brigade against overwhelming Confederate forces that brought time for shattered Union forces to reform on Cemetery Hill. Dunkelman has also captured this intense fight in an outdoor mural that stands as a dramatic backdrop along Coster Avenue today. Dunkelman tells the important story of how this important piece of public art came into being and how it enriches our understanding of the last stand of Union forces on July 1st 1863
