I have been a lifelong American History buff with an emphasis on the American Civil War era. Due to growing up in close proximity to Gettysburg, (Reading/Berks County, PA) that battle became my focus. I moved to Gettysburg in January of 2004 and pursued my interests full time.  I studied for and passed the exam to become a Licensed Town Guide in May of 2006 and have been an active volunteer with Main Street Gettysburg, the Friends of the National Parks at Gettysburg, and the Adams County Historical Society.  I have been employed for 1 1/2 years at The National Shrine of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton in Emmitsburg, MD, where I developed a specialty tour titled “Miracles Amidst the Firestorm” describing the contributions the Daughters of Charity made as nurses during the Civil War. The tour also covers the reaction the Sisters had to Union soldiers camped on their property during the last week of June of 1863, just days prior to the Battle of Gettysburg. Tours are also offered that delve into the rich history and legacy of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton an order of religious women she founded on the site in 1809.  I currently live in Bonneauville, PA with my husband Rick and our 1 ½ year old black lab/collie named Harley, a cockatiel named Jay and Susie the angelfish.  If I am not out participating in one of the above activities, you can usually find me at my home computer working on research related to various writing projects.

Patricia (Pat) Rich was raised in southern Maryland, on the outskirts of the nation’s capital, and just down the road from the Surratt House and Tavern. She developed an early interest in history which would eventually lead to her meeting and marrying her husband, a like-minded individual. Starting with a honeymoon in Gettysburg nearly 30 years ago, they have become regular visitors, spending many hours on the battlefield. It was during these visits that Pat began taking photographs and sharing them in forums and on social media. A graphic designer by trade, she created the Gettysburg Landscapes Calendar (now in its fifth year), showcasing battlefield scenery. Her calendar, photo prints, notecards, and other souvenirs are being sold in shops throughout town, including Gettysburg Publishing and More. Pat loves books, movies, and music, and touring and photographing historical locations. She currently resides in North Point, MD, an area rich in War of 1812 history, with her husband and two furry, feline children.

In Gettysburg during the 1990's, I fell in love with all aspects of the Battle of Gettysburg and all those involved. I am the author of "Test Your Knowledge On The Battle Of Gettysburg" and co-authored "A Quiet Town No More."  In 2012, I founded Gettysburg Publishing LLC and forged such wonderful relationships with authors, historians and all those who have an interest in our nation's history.  I am currently working on "Test Your Knowledge On The Battle Of Gettysburg  II" and two other works about the Battle of Gettysburg.  I will always remember my grandparents who came to this country and became proud American citizens.  I was always told of the happiness and love they had for their new country and how proud they were to become citizens; they ha​ve given me the inspiration to share our history with pride.   Gettysburg Publishing is proud to be involved with the welfare of our men and women in the armed forces, veterans, and with animal rescue organizations across the country.
