Experience the Battle of Gettysburg from a new vantage point on Sunday, January 26, at 2:00 pm! Meet with the Authors of Gettysburg: The Story of the Battle with Maps.
Stackpole Books President and CEO M. David Detweiler and Stackpole Books History Editor David Reisch recreate the Battle of Gettysburg in their new book with a series of 70 full-page color maps to show how the battle unfolded across the entire battlefield from July 1 to 3, 1863. The book also contains matching text that recounts the stories of Devil’s Den, Joshua Chamberlain and Little Round Top, Pickett’s Charge, and other important events. Historian James McPherson has praised it as “the clearest cartographic picture of the battle in existence.”
Detweiler and Reisch will discuss the events of the Battle of Gettysburg and the creative process behind their new title in the lower level meeting room of the Simpson Library.
Patrons can register for the event by calling 766-0171 or emailing the library at firstname.lastname@example.org.
