Bicycling Gettysburg National Military Park: The Cyclist's Civil War Travel Guide (Paperback)
Learn about the Union victory at the Battle of Gettysburg (July 1-3, 1863) from the perspective of a bicyclist who studies geography, family farms, roads, monuments, and the impact of the U.S. Civil War on both citizens and soldiers. You do not need to be a bicyclist to enjoy this guidebook.
Bicycling Gettysburg National Military Park: The Cyclist's Civil War Travel Guide is the one-and-only reference that you need to tour the Gettysburg battlefield on a bike. This book's 286 full-color pages are packed with 34 maps, 100+ monument and landscape photographs, and GPS points for a 23.8-mile looped tour over 6,000 acres of park land. Written for experienced and recreational bicyclists alike, this guidebook is a treasure trove of historical summaries that even licensed battlefield guides will enjoy reading and (re)committing to memory.
The author learned from personal experience that Gettysburg auto tours are not ideal for bicyclists who want safe, circular, and historically themed rides over park lands (avoiding traffic, where possible). This guidebook is the answer.
