RETREAT FROM GETTYSBURG WITH ERIC WITTENBERG

This month we are happy to host our friend and one of our most popular speakers, Eric J. Wittenberg, to discuss his book One Continuous Fight: The Retreat from Gettysburg and the Pursuit of Lee’s Army of Northern Virginia, July 4-14, 1863.

Eric was raised in southeastern Pennsylvania, and made his first trip to the Gettysburg battlefield as a third-grader.  By the end of that trip, he was fully hooked on the Civil War.

Eric is an alumnus of Dickinson College in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, and also has two degrees from the University of Pittsburgh, a master’s degree in public and international affairs from Pitt’s Graduate School of Public and International Affairs as well his Juris Doctor from the University of Pittsburgh, School of Law.

Our speaker is an award-winning Civil War historian, with a focus on cavalry operations, with a particular emphasis on the Army of the Potomac’s Cavalry Corps. He is the author of sixteen published books, all of which are available for purchase on this site. His first book, Gettysburg’s Forgotten Cavalry Actions, was named the third winner of the Robert E. Lee Civil War Roundtable of Central New Jersey’s Bachelder-Coddington Literary Award as the best new work interpreting the Battle of Gettysburg of 1998. Other works of his have been chosen as main selections by the History and Military Book Clubs, and his work uniformly receives good reviews. He is also the author of more than two dozen published articles on Civil War cavalry operations. His articles have appeared in Gettysburg Magazine, North & South, Blue & Gray, Hallowed Ground, America’s Civil War, and Civil War Times Illustrated.

Eric regularly travels the country to lecture on the war, and he is frequently asked to lead Civil War battlefield tours. Battlefield preservation work is very important to him. He sits on the boards of advisors of the Trevilian Station Battlefield Foundation and the Friends of the Alligator, and has regularly worked with the Civil War Preservation Trust in helping to save battlefield land. He is an original member of, as well as past president and program chairman of, the Central Ohio Civil War Roundtable. He is the vice president of the Buffington Island Battlefield Preservation Foundation and serves as one of 18 members of the Governor of Ohio’s Advisory Commission on the Sesquicentennial of the Civil War.

You can learn more about our speaker on his popular and well-regarded blog, Rantings of a Civil War Historian.

As always, we look forward to his visit, and hope you will join us!
