The heavily wooded slopes of Culp's Hill do not easily lend themselves to visions of long, gallant lines of charging infantry as do other areas on the battlefield at Gettysburg. But the regimental monuments and traces of breastworks that line the slopes of Culp's Hill bear silent testament to the hellish conflict: no other spot at Gettysburg would see such a sustained period of brutal combat as when North and South vied for this ground. The reader is invited to tour this seldom explored segment of the battle using maps, photos, and first-hand accounts to help understand the unique character of the struggle for Culp's Hill and the men who fought for its slopes.

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 works as a Licensed Guide for the Gettysburg National Military Park, and at Gettysburg College. 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 is a finalist for the Langum Prize in American Historical Fiction.
