FREE EVENT at BATTLEFIELD B&B: Thursday, June 20th, 2013, 7:30 p.m. Open to the public.
Four authors of Gettysburg books will appear at the Battlefield B&B in Gettysburg, along with 90-year-old Ruth Angeli. Ruth is the great-granddaughter of Elizabeth Thorn, the cemetery keeper’s wife who took care of the graveyard after the battle in 1863. Ruth will be visiting Gettysburg from her home in St. Petersburg, Florida, and she will have the honor of sleeping in her great-grandmother’s bed at the Evergreen Cemetery Gatehouse. Ruth will speak at the Battlefield B&B event on June 20th, and she is also available to sign Linda Oatman High’s book The Cemetery Keepers of Gettysburg, which is based upon Ruth’s great-grandmother Elizabeth Thorn.
The authors, all signing books and speaking at the event, are as follows:
Marty Crisp: author of Private Captain
Linda Oatman High: author of The Cemetery Keepers of Gettysburg, 1863
Lois Szymanski and Shelley Sykes: authors of The Gettysburg Ghost Gang series
All four authors have published multiple books, and will have some of those books available for sale, as well as their Gettysburg-based books. More info on the authors and their work may be found on:
