Reviews

"After years of navigating Civil War Battlefields by car, bus, and foot, I'm convinced there is no better way to explore than by bicycle. ... Thibodeau has done her research and her route maps are meticulously detailed... The book offers a broad battle overview, park signage, and fun facts, such as a list of presidents who have visited Antietam. Its wealth of information means you should study the book and routes before hitting the road but stick it in your bike basket or daypack as a quick reference..." ~Civil War Times

Reviews


"After following the book's Culp's Hill course on a balmy Saturday morning in May, I'm sold that there may be no better way to tour the battlefield than on two wheels. The opportunity to cruise past the landscape's open fields, rocky hills, and woodlots, while easily hopping on and off bike for frequent stops to read monuments or signage or to snap photographs, is incomparable." ~Civil War Times

"Bicycling Gettysburg is comprehensible to readers and riders of all ages and expertise... concise and readable for both aficionados and novices alike." ~Civil War Monitor

"The best ways to truly see a battlefield are by walking and biking. And biking a battlefield such as Gettysburg provides a rush like no other. Sue has produced a valuable book about how to ride that most hallowed Civil War ground. A definite keeper." ~John Banks, journalist, blogger, author

"Three days in July 1863 changed America. Whether you are an experienced cyclist or just starting out, a serious historian or history buff, you will want to visit Gettysburg more than once. Make sure you take this guide along." ~Ken Rich, Gettysburg history buff

"Quite fascinating, Bicycling Gettysburg National Military Park is a great, easy to read book for history buffs and rookie history learners alike. It is a pictorial book that also has detailed information about the Battle of Gettysburg. I am excited to use the maps and images on my next visit to Gettysburg." ~SPC Kevin Kozlowski, U.S. Army veteran
