The Last to Fall: The 1922 March, Battles & Deaths of U.S. Marines at Gettysburg.

Signed by authors Richard D. L. Fulton and James Rada, Jr.

"On June 19, 1922, more than 5,000 Marines left Quantico, heading north to the battlefield of Gettysburg. While some injuries had been expected as was the case with any large battle simulation, men died during these maneuvers, becoming the last U.S. Marines killed in the line of duty on the Gettysburg battlefield. Despite the pall cast over the maneuvers following the deaths, the Marine mission proceeded. For 10 days, battle raged once again on the fields and ridges where thousands had perished 59 years prior... climaxing on July 4 when the Marines fought the Battle of Gettysburg with “modern” weapons and tactics.""
