The Shriver's Story
The Shrivers' Story
Eyewitnesses To The Battle Of Gettysburg
By: Nancie W. Gudmestad
Paperback, 108 pages
Few books have been written about the 2,400 citizens who found themselves embroiled in one of the deadliest and most historic battles ever fought on American soil. The Shrivers' Story is the true story of one family who called Gettysburg "home" in 1863. It depicts how not only this battle but the Civil War itself dramatically changed the Shrivers' lives forever. The story of George and Hettie Shriver is typical of the average Gettysburg civilian's, and by extension, provides a fuller picture of the overall civilian experience itself.
