Second edition of Flames Beyond Gettysburg coming soon!

Savas Beatie will be publishing the totally revised and improved Flames Beyond Gettysburg: The Confederate Expedition to the Susquehanna River, June 1863. The first edition (Ironclad Publishing, 2009) is sold out just about everywhere (including the York Emporium where Jim Lewin recently sold his last autographed collectible edition).
This second edition has dozens and dozens of new stories, incidents, and anecdotes concerning Confederate general Jubal Early’s drive through Franklin, Adams, and York counties in June 1863 as he marched steadily toward the Susquehanna River and the world’s longest covered bridge which connected Wrightsville and Columbia. So many people have graciously sent me original diaries, letters, journal entries, and other articles that are quite useful and really add to the richness and depth of the narrative. Now the story of the Rebel expedition is even more interesting!
