    Witness to Gettysburg brings the bloodiest, most crucial battle of the Civil War to life through on-the-spot eyewitness accounts. From the courageous fighting men and officers to the civilians watching as the conflict raged through their towns, from the reporters riding with the regiments to the children excited or terrified by the titanic drama unfolding before them, each account stems from personal experience and blends with the whole to create a startlingly vivid tapestry of war. In their own words, and through the eyes of their closest aides, such commanders as Robert E. Lee, Jeb Stuart, and George Meade.

    Story

    Accurrate first hand accounts from participants, both blue and grey, and local residents. Totally different perspective from other narrative descriptions of the battle and events that led up to those three fateful days in July of 1863. Even for a veteran Gettysburg battle follower as myself this was a master class above and beyond any previous experience. Born and raised in Gettysburg, and a lifelong tourist of the area, with countless trips to musuems and field displays, I still gained many new insights. History from the mouths of witnesses, first hand, from letters, diaries and news accounts of the day. Powerful stuff.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: If you ever thought history was boring, David McCullough’s performance of his fascinating book will change your mind. In this stirring audiobook, McCullough tells the intensely human story of those who marched with General George Washington in the year of the Declaration of Independence, when the whole American cause was riding on their success.

    Story

    David McCullough presents a vivid dramatization of the single most important year in the history of the American revolution. Our independence from England swung in the balance at several key battle sites and save for a bit of luck and some incredible bravery, demonstrated by a small outnumbered army of true patriots, it may have never happened. 1776 was the year that America was born but this novel details the labor pains the nation suffered durring that birth. Masterful descriptions of battle details, strategies, and tactics. A living historical version of that fateful year. Well worth reading or listening.

    Few men in sports history have accomplished more than Yogi Berra: three MVP Awards, 21 World Series appearances as a player, coach, and manager, and a plaque in Cooperstown honoring him as arguably the greatest catcher to ever play the position. Off the field, the man often derided for his appearance has become one of the most beloved and enduring sports figures of all time, as well as a successful pitchman and the source of some of the most-repeated expressions in the English language.

    Story

    A simple man from a working immigrant family becomes an iconic legend in America's national pastime, baseball. A diminutive giant among heroes in Yankee history, the bridge between old and new. Holder of some of the most prestigious major league records, particularly world series records, which likely will never be broken in the modern free agency era. A humble man dedicated to family and principle, remembered as much for his "Berra"ism expressions as his baseball ability. A book which captures the essence of the man while transporting the reader back to the glory days of baseball. Relive some outstanding historical events with the firsthand perspective only Yogi can provide. Most enjoyable. Those were the days.
