56 - CAPE G, Friday, September 24 - September 30, 1999 'Gettysburg' book 00uthor to sign copies Oct. 2 t Richard Wheeler of Pine Grove, Pa., and a frequent Cape Region visitor, will be at Books by the Bay, 103 Second Street in Lewes, between 1 and 3 p.m., Sat- urday, Oct. 2, to sign his new book, "Gettysburg 1863: Cam- palgn of Endless Echoes." Endorsed by the Civil War Cen- ter, "Gettysburg 1863" is Wheel- er's 17th book dealing with the human side of American military history and his 12th on a Civil War topic. This is not one of his traditional "eyewitness histories," but rather an interpretation in his own words, utilizing a great deal of little known material and many fresh revelations, Douglas Brinkley, director of the Eisenbower Center for Ameri- can Studies at the University of New Orleans, termed "Gettysburg 1863" as "a gripping and concise narrative history of the most mo- mentous battle of the American Civil War. An impossible book to put down." Former Marine Wheeler traces Robert E. Lee's long march from eastern Virginia to the fateful fields of Gettysburg. His army of 75,000 was shadowed by the 85,000-man Army of the Potomac marching on the opposite banks of the Rappahannock River. On the way to Gettysburg, Wheeler describes the largest cavalry bat- tle of the Civil War, the fan/ous clash between Confederate Gen- eral Jeb Stuart's men and a strong Union force under General Pleasanton of Brandy Station. Getting to the main conflict, the author "builds a solid framework of the actual events, then enriches it with anecdotes and sketches of the soldiers and commanders that give readers a sense of being eye- witnesses," according to the Kirkus Reviews, which terms "Gettysburg 1963" as a "gripping and highly reeornmended survey, unencumbered with excessively intricate details that should satisfy both the student and veteran Civil War fan." The cost of the paperback origi- nal, published by Penguin Putnam Inc., is $15.95 Professionals needed for local mentoring programs Those who enjoy working with people and would like to help someone in your profession, find out how at the Professional Men- toting Professionals workshop at Delaware Tech from noon to 1 p.m. This free session is open to those who are interested in learn- ing how they can assist their pro- fessional colleagues whose ca- reers have been interrupted due to illness.
