REVIEW: Widow of Gettysburg


WIDOW OF GETTYSBURG gives women’s and local’s points-of-view regarding the Civil War itself in the days before, during and weeks following the famous and intense battle at Gettysburg.  Liberty was a surprisingly strong character who rose up to the challenge.  I liked the interaction that Amelia provided as the grieving mother-in-law.  Bella showed a quiet strength, guiding Liberty.  Jocelyn Green provides tons of historical accuracy in her books.  One example I can provide is the Necco wafers that the reporter carried. In addition to learning about the townfolk and their stories, you’ll come away having learned a lot about war and its damages.  This is an excellent, well-researched story.
