Coco, Gregory A.  Reprinted by Savas Beatie, 2022.  Softcover, 128 pages.

On The Bloodstained Field presents nearly 300 compelling human-interest stories from the Battle of Gettysburg that are so fascinating that it is nearly impossible to stop reading. Did you know that a dog was probably one of the first casualties in the battle? Or that a “gentleman’s duel” took place during the fighting on July 2? Few know that a soldier committed suicide during the fighting, or that three brothers were killed by a single shell, and that a Gettysburg farmer lost several thousands of dollars in gold stolen by a Confederate general.

On The Bloodstained Field is perfect for young students of the battle or veteran campaigners who want lighter fare—much of it they have never heard or read before.

A perfect companion to A Strange and Blighted Land, A Vast Sea of Misery, and Wasted Valor.

Gregory Ashton Coco, born and raised in Louisiana, lived in the Gettysburg area for nearly 35 years. In 1972, after serving in the U.S. Army, he earned a degree in American History from the University of Southwestern Louisiana. While in the military, Greg spent a tour of duty in Vietnam as a prisoner of war military interrogator and infantry platoon radio operator with the 25th Infantry and received, among other awards, the Purple Heart and Bronze Star. During his years in Gettysburg, Greg worked as a National Park Service Ranger and a Licensed Battlefield Guide. He wrote sixteen books and a dozen scholarly articles on Gettysburg and the Civil War. His A Strange and Blighted Land. Gettysburg: The Aftermath of a Battle was voted #12 in the Top 50 Civil War Books ever written. Greg died at age 62 in February of 2009.
