This second book in Civil War Cycling's military travel guide series belongs on every Civil War history buff's bookshelf, whether you are a bicyclist or not. It is a short but dense reference work that teaches American history by weaving historical themes with the aid of maps and photos that enable "learning on two wheels." For readers who also appreciate supporting details, the book includes a substantial section of endnotes, a glossary, and a bibliography that focuses specifically on Civil War Maryland and hiking and biking tourism.
Written by a native Marylander who wanted to showcase the history of Maryland civilians and soldiers, Bicycling Antietam National Battlefield offers a unique approach to active, experiential learning.
