Now that “Echoes From Gettysburg: South Carolina’s Memories and Images” is out in the marketplace, it is time to take the work I did in “Georgia Remembers Gettysburg” and go it one better. “Georgia Remembers Gettysburg” is now out of print and copies on the secondary market — at last check — are going for around $600 and up. Never fear, it will soon be back. Fox Run Publishing will be releasing an updated and improved edition as a follow-up to the South Carolina edition.
The superlative maps of Phillip Laino will once again make an appearance to illustrate the positions and movements of Georgia’s soldiers at Gettysburg just as they do in the South Carolina edition of “Echoes From Gettysburg.” Add to this the stories from “Georgia Remembers Gettysburg” along with additional material I have discovered and photographs of Georgia veterans who fought in the battle and it will reemerge as “Echoes From Gettysburg: Georgia’s Memories and Images.”
Here is where you come in. I need your help. If you have photographs of a Georgia ancestor who you believe fought at Gettysburg, I want to hear from you! Of course, war time images are the prize, but I am interested in post war images as well. I know these are out there and if you want to see your ancestor honored in print, here is your opportunity.
