Still curious. Is English your native language? If it isn't, you have done very well to take such an intense interest in the Civil War, especially given your youth. Keep up the good work. 

One of the books I would recommend you read is Noah Andre Trudeau's "Gettysburg: A Testing of Courage". There are other far more detailed and exhaustive books on the Gettysburg such as Coddington's "Gettysburg Campaign: A Study in Command" but Trudeau's makes an excellent introduction and will undoubtedly answer many of your questions about the battle, its run-up and its aftermath.
