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.

About the Author:

Although Yankee born and bred, John Archer's fascination with the Civil War stems from a childhood discovery of Confederate ancestors in his family tree. He now lives in Gettysburg, where in addition to writing, he is employed at Gettysburg College and as a Licensed Guide for Gettysburg National Military Park. His interpretive tours have been featured in PCN TV's Gettysburg Battlewalks Series. His written work includes two histories of the battle, "The Hour Was One of Horror: East Cemetery Hill at Gettysburg" and "Culp's Hill at Gettysburg," as well as articles in "Blue and Gray," "Gettysburg Magazine," and other periodicals. His first work of historical fiction, "After the Rain: A Novel of War and Coming Home," was released in 2011, and was a finalist to receive the Langum Prize in American Historical Fiction.
