Summer always seems to fly by in historic Gettysburg. We are back again with the latest issue of The Gettysburg Experience
, bringing you more articles of interest, delicious recipes, and our updated Calendar of Events.
The Calendar begins on page 11 of this issue.
A chance meeting with one of the nation’s most brilliant historians resulted in an interview about Gettysburg – his and our favorite battlefield. Read A Conversation with Ed Bearss , beginning on page 25. Our Gettysburg Addresses series continues with The Wentz House:“Goodbye and God Bless You”, beginning on page 35.
There is so much to see at Gettysburg. Visitors often miss noticing interesting places that are easy to find if you know where to look. Read In Plain Sight: Some Overlooked Gettysburg Spots , beginning on page 47. And, a biographical sketch of a man who fought at Gettysburg is chronicled in Charles Graham at Gettysburg: “It Is Dreadful” is found on page 61.
In our June issue, an article about The Leister Farm had a piece of incorrect information. I had written that she likely stayed in Taneytown with her brother during the battle, and I had found a contemporary source that listed this information. A few historians here who know better have ascertained that no one really knows where Lydia Leister went, and her brother lived in Gettysburg in 1863. I trust their knowledge about it, and want to retract that information.
For those joining us for the first time, don’t forget the Trivia Questions at the bottom of every odd-numbered page (except the center, where our Map of Gettysburg is found). A hint to ace the Trivia: Read the articles first. Answers are on page 77.
An Advertisers’ Directory is found for your convenience on page 78. We shop at their establishments too, and can highly recommend them!
Thank you for choosing The Gettysburg Experience , a part of Gettysburg since 1997.
