Editorial Reviews for this title:
The odd grassy mound between the long ridges south of Gettysburg might arose the curiosity of a visitor, but the site of the Bliss Farm lies hundreds of yards from modern tour routes. Certainly, more infamous sites on the battlefield vie for one's attention, and the struggle for this once prosperous homestead is overlooked. Yet on July 2 & 3, 1863, the incongruously named farm was a no-man's land that changed hands some ten times- possibly more than any other ground at Gettysburg. The reader is invited to tour this seldom explored area of the battlefield using maps, photos, and first-hand accounts to discover how that struggle impacted Lee's plan for victory, the lives of those who fought here, and the Bliss family.
