Topic: "Secrets of the Gettysburg Battlefield"


       The Battle of Gettysburg was the turning point of the Civil War. In 1863, July 1 - 3 saw the greatest number of casualties during the war. Beyond the fighting, the battlefield is the site of many other true stories of war, legends, reconciliation, and fantasy. Author James Rada Jr. will spill the Secrets of the Gettysburg Battlefield with stories of dinosaurs, warriors, interesting people, and unusual incidents. These are the stories that you won't read about in history textbooks.

       James Rada Jr. writes non-fiction history and historical fiction. His books include Canawlers, October Mourning, and Battlefield Angels: the Daughters of Charity Work as Civil War Nurses. He lives in Gettysburg, Pa., where he works as a freelance writer. James has received numerous awards from the Maryland-Delawar-DC Press Association, Associated Press, Maryland State Teachers Association, and Community Newspapers Holdings, Inc. for his writing.
