They Did Their Work Bravely: Civil War Generals Buried in Pennsylvania


There are 44 full rank Union generals and 1 Confederate general buried in Pennsylvania and, until now, no books have been published concerning the burial sites of these generals. George G. Meade, Winfield S. Hancock, and John F. Reynolds are among the famous generals featured. Brief biographical sketches, complete with photographic portraits, are provided for each general and contain sufficient detail to give the reader a better understanding of these generals and their war records. One or more photos are provided for each grave site, as well as a map of the cemetery or directions for finding each grave site. The book is arranged by the cities or towns where the generals are buried. Anyone interested in the Civil War, military history, Pennsylvania history, cemeteries and/or genealogy will want to add this book to their library.

The author is a life-long Civil War enthusiast who has worked as a guide at the Gettysburg National Military Park. He has had five articles published in The Gettysburg Magazine, and he currently publishes Grave Matters, a newsletter about Civil War grave sites.
