SKETCH OF THE BATTLE OF GETTYSBURG, FRIDAY MORNING, JULY 3d, 1863. (Reprint) Sketch by Edwin Forbes, found in Frank Leslie's Illustrated Famous Leaders and Battle Scenes of the Civil War, 1896. "In [this] illustration may be studied the struggle on Friday morning. On the Federal right the battle raged furiously from early dawn. Ewell was determined to advance from the rifle-pits he had taken the night before, and Slocum was equally resolute to recover them. Geary and Birney here met the first assault firmly. For six hours the struggle was desperate on both sides. The Confederates seemed to laugh at death, and again and again charged through the smoke of artillery with shouts that swelled above the uproar. Wheaton's Brigade, of the Sixth, was hurried up to the rescue, and the Federal line which had been forced back for a moment, again advanced; more troops were pushed forward, artillery brought up on a gallop, and posted so as to enfilade the hostile ranks. At eleven o'clock the enemy gave it up, and his shattered bleeding battalions fell back in despair." 16 1/2 x 11 1/2 on heavy 70# paper, suitable for framing

SO YOU WANT TO BE A SOLDIER: HOW TO GET STARTED IN CIVIL WAR RE-ENACTING. 2004 by Shaun C. Grenan, Introduction and Edited by Patrick A. Schroeder. This book answers the seemingly endless questions that flood the mind when getting started in this hobby -- questions like: What do I need? How do I get my gear? Where do I get it? Who do I get it from? How much does it cost? What do I need to bring for food rations at an event? How do I make hardtack? What about drill and loading a musket? Re-enacting today has something for everyone. And for some, it's a chance to get away from the job or home and lose themselves in the past. For others, it is something they can do with family or friends. For the younger generation, re-enacting instills a sense of history and offers a chance to learn more than what can be taught in the classroom. The belief that "history is boring" quickly fades on a re-enacting battlefield or amidst a living history demonstration. This book is essential for the Civil War re-enacting community. 80 pages, 5 x 8 1/2 soft cover ISBN 1-889246-19-0.
