Patrick Brennan, a long-time student of the Civil War, author of Secessionville, and an editorial advisor for The Civil War Monitor magazine, has teamed up with his technology-astute daughter, Dylan Brennan, to bring the largest Civil War battle to life in Gettysburg in Color. Volume 1 spans Brandy Station to the Peach Orchard. Patrick Brennan will be signing these books directly. We are unable to offer personalized inscriptions for this title. If you order after the program, you will receive a bookplate signed by Patrick Brennan.
Volume 2 is pending and will cover The Wheatfield to Falling Waters. If volume 2 becomes available before the program, we will offer it here as well.
