Yesterday I received my copy of the July issue of “America’s Civil War” magazine, which features my new article on the cavalry battle at Fairfield, Pa, just a few miles behind Lee’s lines at Gettysburg. The fight between the 6th US Cavalry and regiments of BG “Grumble” Jones’ Laurel Brigade took place on the afternoon of July 3, 1863, just as Pickett’s Charge was raging a few miles to the northeast.
The folks at ACW did a terrific job laying out the article and adding pictures of several items related to the battle and the veterans. The whole issue is filled with great Gettysburg material. If you don’t subscribe, please check it out at your local newsstand.
Now owned by Weider History Group, ACW (as well as sister magazine Civil War Times and others) has been getting a radically new look over the past year or so. I think most of the changes are for the better, and it’s obvious they’re putting a lot of hard work and thought into their article and feature presentations.
