Co-authors Jim McClure and Scott Mingus announce the publication of their collaborative effort, Civil War Voices from York County, Pa.: Remembering the Rebellion and the Gettysburg Campaign. Endorsed by the PA 150 Civil War anniversary committee and produced in partnership with the York County Heritage Trust and the York Daily Record / Sunday News.
The new book features more than 200 fresh new stories and anecdotes from the Civil War, with the majority relating to the Gettysburg Campaign.

Highlights include snippets from a previously unknown diary from a Union soldier held at Andersonville prison camp, as well as other accounts from prisoners. Several letters describe the terror and confusion among the citizens as the Confederate army approaches the region during the Gettysburg Campaign.
