Gettysburg signings

It's off to Pennsylvania in the morning for a short vacation culminating in a week-end stay at Gettysburg, where I will be making book signing appearances at four different venues. The schedule for the weekend is:

Saturday June 26
10 am - 2 pm Butternut & Blue booth at the Civil War Show at the Eisenhower Conference Center south of town (Tom Clemens will also be there signing his new South Mountain book)
3 pm - 5 pm Battlefields & Beyond Book Store (777 Baltimore St., near the Jennie Wade house)

Sunday June 27
10 am - 12 pm Gettysburg Gift Center/American CW Museum (the old wax museum there on Steinwehr, sort of behind the old visitor center)
1 pm - 3 pm American History Store (461 Baltimore St., near the Farnsworth House)

So stop by one of these locations if you're in the area!

From the on-line version of today's [Norfolk] Virginian-Pilot [emphasis added]:

"Appomattox Court House National Historic Park on the Eastern Shore is full of Civil War History. Here you can check out The McLean House, which was the site of General Robert E. Lee's surrender to General Grant, ending the Civil War."

Hmmm...guess the wild ponies have moved to central Va? Be sure to check out Shenandoah National Park in Chesapeake and Manassas Nat'l Battlefield in VA Beach on the way through to visit the McLean House in Nassawadox.
