The York CWRT will have a table with discount books for sale as a fundraiser for future meetings and activities. There are many Gettysburg titles, as well as biographies, battle studies, tour guides, collector books, and so much more.
Park Ranger Matt Borders presentation will be on the 1862 Maryland Campaign, the first Confederate Invasion of the North. By looking at all of the major players involved and the outcomes of the fighting it is hoped that this presentation will challenge some of the traditional interpretations of the campaign while highlighting this period as a major turning point in the war.
