Do not buy this book for history--- it makes a light effort in trying to explain what happened at Gettysburg. There are no maps to help the reader understand where in the National Park these sites ate located. If you know the landscape, this will not be a problem. This book is a fun, light read if you enjoy real "ghost" stories and experiences. I find the authors points of view and opinions about "hunting" interesting, refreshing, and grounded. Methods they use put respect first, cheers to that! I just wanted more history. Knowing the area so well....I was looking for something that might begin to capture the land. Hard to do-- for sure. Well written, easy read. I leave three stars because it is a solid, average book. Not epic and groundbreaking (5*)... and not something best to pass on by (1*).
Ghosts of Gettysburg: Walking on Hallowed Ground is a collection of 'keep you up all night' short stories and is without question one of the best ghost books I have ever read.
