Fascinating posts at Gettysburgdaily.com. They are doing an exclusive on Little Round Top and its impact on history. I have read the host's (Gerry Adelman) books and he has an intersting take on the historgraphy of that small, rocky hill in southern PA.
Here are the links to the posts:

I've recently been reading Shelby Footes The Civil War Volume 2. What I found in the book was an excellent source of information regarding the Vicksburg CAmpaign. 180 miles and five straight victories put Grant on the threshold of one of the largest Union victories of the Civil War. Foote does an excellent job protraying Grant's greatest campaign.
