Today I got a peek at somebody else's advance copy of
ONE CONTINUOUS FIGHT: The Retreat from Gettysburg and the Pursuit of Lee's Army of Northern Virginia, July 4-14, 1863 by Eric J. Wittenberg, J. David Petruzzi, and Michael F. Nugent
I thumbed through it and found myself reading about Funkstown, Hagerstown, Williamsport, and many other little towns that dot this valley which I want to know more about. It's as if this book was written for the Civil War enthusiast who also happens to be a newcomer to the area, like me!
I wasted little time getting to the bookstore to pitch the manager on the idea of carrying this new book. It looks really good. And I can't wait to glom onto it (especially at my employee discount!!).
