The Monterey Pass Battlefield Association

I’d like to commend a terrific website to my readers – The Monterey Pass Battlefield Association, run by historian John Miller.  John also has the terrific Emmitsburg.net website.  The Battle of Monterey Pass receives an entire chapter-length treatment in our new book One Continuous Fight on the retreat from Gettysburg.  Taking place in a dark, pounding rainstorm the night of July 4, 1863 between the troopers of Federal Brig. Gen. Judson Kilpatrick and retreating Confederate forces, the battle is one of the little-known but very interesting fights during the ten days of the retreat.  The battlefield is also unprotected because it is entirely in various private hands.

John’s website is terrific and I encourage you to take a look at it.  At the end of September this year, there will be a program on the battle at the Pass, and the three of us – myself, Eric Wittenberg, and Mike Nugent – have been invited to participate.  I will post more here as the details are worked out.
