‘Flames Beyond Gettysburg’ available at York County booksellers

Union Army engineer Herman Haupt quickly rebuilt this bridge in Hanover Junction after invading Confederates burned it in late June 1863. This fast work was important to carry wounded from the Battle of Gettysburg to military hospitals. This Library of Congress photo appears in the just-released “Flames Beyond Gettysburg,” which tells about the Confederate raid. Background posts: Stack of books on York County’s Civil War past getting higher and The Four Bloggers write and ‘One of the shells found its mark’.

Those seeking copies of Scott Mingus’ “Flames Beyond Gettysburg,” the comprehensive look at Confederate Gen. John B. Gordon’s raid to the Susquehanna, can pick one up at the York Emporium.

The York County Heritage Trust and other booksellers now have supplies of the book, too.
That’s the first public sales point for the book, although they can be ordered directly from Mingus at scottmingus@yahoo.com… .

Another Mingus book, Gettysburg Glimpses: True Stories from the Battlefield have been shipped and will soon be available.
“There are a few fresh stories from York County in this new book (Gettysburg Glimpses), a companion to my earlier two-volume Human Interest Stories from the Gettysburg Campaign,’ ” Mingus wrote.
