Rada, Jr., James. Legacy Publishing, February 2019. Softcover, 206 pages. 5 ½” x 8 ½”.

Did you know that the Gettysburg Battlefield played a role in three major wars and not just the Civil War?

Dinosaurs once walked the battlefield and you can still see the signs they left behind? Do you know where to find them?

Do you know that when the Confederates retreated from the battlefield, they took civilians prisoners and held them for the rest of the war?

These are just a few of the stories you can find in Secrets of the Gettysburg Battlefield: Little-Known Stories & Hidden History From the Civil War Battlefield.

This is the fourth book in Rada’s Secrets series (along with Secrets of Garrett County, Secrets of Catoctin Mountain, and Secrets of the C&O Canal). Like the other books in the series, it’s a collection of true stories that highlight an area’s forgotten stories, and sometimes, they are the most interesting stories about the area. The purpose of the series is to bring those stories to readers.

The Battle of Gettysburg was the turning point of the Civil War. The July 1-3, 1863, battle saw the greatest number of casualties during the war. Beyond the fighting, the battlefield is the site of many other true stories of war, legends, reconciliation, and fantasy. These are the types of stories you won’t read about in history textbooks. Secrets of the Gettysburg Battlefield is a collection of 32 stories and 60 photographs that includes new and previously published stories from newspapers and magazines.
