Hittin' the Road plus some Book Signings

Yes, that time has finally arrived. I'm moving to Gettysburg tomorrow! I have most of my things packed and will be heading down in my "Burg Mobile" (shown above) in the morning. It's bound to be a busy week. I will officially start my training on Tuesday morning. I'm not sure when my next post will be since I still need to get my internet access hooked up at my new home. But fear not, I will be continuing my posts throughout the summer.

I'm also taking my large collection of Gettysburg books. (There are more on the other side of the bin too!) Good stuff, huh? My mom was making fun of me for taking such a heavy collection. I told her if she were a medical student going to do an internship at a big, prestigious hospital, would she not take her medical books for reference? I have about thirty books total (with an equal number of movies; only a fourth of which are Civil War films though...)

I will also be having two book signings at the Gettysburg Visitor Center book store this weekend. I will be signing copies of Civil War Leaders, More Civil War Leaders, and Historic Pennsylvania, all shown above from my Remembrance Day appearance. If you will be in town, please come by and say hello! I will be there on:

Sunday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and Monday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

I usually stay a bit longer than the given times. I hope to see some of you there. I've had lots of fun and learned many things since starting this blog in January. I also hope many of you will continue to visit this site as I embark on my great summer adventure. See you in Gettysburg!


  1. Good luck on your new life in Gettysburg.

  2. Oh darn, I was at the visitor center on Saturday. I wish I had read this blog post before we left to go up there. I just got home today. We had a wonderful time and hope to get back up there soon. It is the most awesome place!
