My good friend Scott Mingus Sr. has recently released his latest volume of his “Human Interest Stories” series – this one is Volume 2 of Gettysburg Campaign vignettes. I recently received a copy from Scott, and it’s as wonderful as the other volumes. Each volume contains short vignettes of stories, factoids, trivia, and personal experiences all culled from primary sources. The books are, incidentally, terrific sources in and of themselves, and Eric, Mike and I even used Mingus’ Volume 1 of Gettysburg stories in our recent book on the Gettysburg retreat.
Each volume is priced at only $9.95, well worth it for the enjoyment in each one. As you read each story, you’ll find yourself alternately shaking your head, chuckling, and wanting to cry.
