The Alexander Dobbin House in Gettysburg: A Short Story
The Alexander Dobbin House in Gettysburg: A Short Story
Our Price: $9.95

One of Gettysburg’s most popular restaurants is also its oldest building- and one of its most historic. Built in 1776 for Reverend Alexander Dobbin, the house has been witness to historic political and religious meetings, students gathering for class, slaves seeking refuge on “The Underground Railroad,” and to the Battle of Gettysburg. To read about the Dobbin House is to read about the history of Gettysburg, and stirring moments in our nation’s history.

John Burns: The Hero of Gettysburg
John Burns: The Hero of Gettysburg
Our Price: $14.95

John L. Burns is one of the most famous civilian warriors in American history. On July 1, 1863, he left the shelter of his Gettysburg home and joined in the fighting west of town. Wounded and captured, he survived the battle to become a national celebrity. In the months that followed, he was visited by reporters and photographers; he received the personal thanks of Abraham Lincoln, and Congress passed a special act granting him a pension. As his tale spread across the land, some of its details became distorted, and today much of what happened is shrouded in myth and legend. In this, the first full-length biography published on Burns, Smith has attempted to sort fact from fiction and tell the true story of "The Hero of Gettysburg."
