A GETTYSBURG VIGNETTE by Patrick E. Craig reviewed by Marian Baay

A Gettysburg Vignette

Reviewed by Marian Baay

1863 – Jack Skelly, a wounded Union soldier, wrote a letter to his sweetheart Ginnie Wade. When he was wounded in June, he gave the letter to his friend Wesley Culp—a soldier from the South. Jack made Wesley swear to deliver the letter to Ginnie in Gettysburg. Wesley took the letter with him and was sincerely hoping to deliver it to Ginnie when the battle of Gettysburg was over . . . only Wesley did not survive the battle, neither did Ginnie.

2013 – Randy Culpepper is on his way to the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg. He is the great–great grandson of Wesley’s friend Jed Culpepper. He knows all about the Battle of Gettysburg from his grandfatherwho told him everything there is to know on this historical event when he was growing up. He had heard of the letter Wesley Culp was supposed to deliver to Ginnie, but the letter got lost.
When Randy arrives in Gettysburg, he has a weird experience that could make him able to solve the mystery of the missing letter.

A story full historical detail – that brings the characters from the past to life – an unexpected twist and smart plot make this an enjoyable read.
Another great story in the Cry of Freedom series!
