The long awaited release of "Elizabeth Thorn of Gettysburg" will be available on December 20th. According to the history books, the story of the Battle of Gettysburg ended when the armies departed on July 4,1863. But for the citizens of Gettysburg, their story was just beginning. Many survived three days (July 1-3, 1863) of battle that raged around and through their farms and homes and were left alone to pick up the pieces. To a casual observer, Elizabeth Thorn was no different than all of the other civilians doing their part to restore their town from the devastation of war. However, upon further investigation, she was very different. No other woman in town was a six-month pregnant mother, who simultaneously managed both a household and a cemetery, and acted as sole caretaker to two aging parents. No other woman was asked to dig nearly a hundred soldiers’
graves. Elizabeth performed all of these strenuous tasks in the heat and the stench of a battlefield of bodies left to rot in the hot summer sun. This is her story and the story of the Evergreen Cemetery, a small-town burial ground that acquired national fame.

Gettysburg: The Nature of a Battlefield by Patricia Rich
For the Gettysburg enthusiast who has everything (or would like to), Gettysburg Publishing announces the upcoming release of Gettysburg: The Nature of a Battlefield by Patricia Rich.
Patricia Rich, battlefield enthusiast and photographer, has compiled an incredible selection of her best photos into a handy field guide of birds and flowers that can be found in the Gettysburg National Military Park. This book contains page after page of full-color photos along with short descriptions of a large variety of birds and flowers photographed while on tours and random excursions within the park. Small enough to throw into your backpack, tote bag, or glove compartment, but large enough for easy identification while in the field, this guide will soon become a favorite for the battlefield trekker, casual visitor, or true lover of nature.
Experience ALL that the battlefield has to offer.

and EXPANDED edition of Phil Laino's masterpiece
