The Battle of Gettysburg was fought from July 1 – 3, 1863 with over 51,000 American casualties, making this battle the single-most costly conflict fought on U.S. soil. The Gettysburg National Military Park is arguably the most famous and most visited of Civil War battlefield sites. David Craig and Mary Martin’s book, Greetings from Gettysburg, is as much about visitors to Gettysburg as it is about the soldiers and the battle itself. The authors will discuss how the book, featuring historic postcards and quotations, offers a unique visitor’s guide to Gettysburg battlefields and vicinity.
