Scott L. Mingus, Sr. sent me a copy of his latest, Civil War Voices from York County, PA: Remembering the Rebellion and the Gettysburg Campaign, co-written with James McClure. Scott is now officially prolific – check out his author page on Amazon. Jim McClure is the editor of the York Daily Record newspaper and the author of several books on the history of York County, Pa.
With this book, numerous primary sources – newspaper accounts, letters, diaries, even oral histories – are brought together to tell the story of York County in south-central PA, where North meets South at the Pennsylvania and Maryland border. It’s an interesting and revealing collection of stories and anecdotes, just the thing for folks interested in the Gettysburg Campaign in particular but also in how the war affected this unique community.
