Gettysburg , Stephen W. Sears (2004). Yes, another in a series of military histories from jsorense. This one is quite good, if you are interested in the American Civil War (aka War of Nothern Aggression). This book is detailed, down to the individual tactics of regiments. It is , therefore for an audience that is already familiar with the battle. If you just interested in an overview then you may be overwhelmed by the details in this volume. Do you really want to know the succession of 'chains of command' for the different army units? Probably not.
If you are interested in this book then I highly recommend Sear's book on the Battle of Antietam, Landscape Turned Red. I give both of these books a healthy 8/10.
