In the summer of 1863, as Union and Confederate armies converged on southern Pennsylvania, the town of Gettysburg found itself thrust onto the center stage of war. The three days of fighting that ensued decisively turned the tide of the Civil War. In The Colors of Courage, Margaret Creighton narrates the tale of this crucial battle from the viewpoint of three unsung groups--women, immigrants, and African Americans--and reveals how wide the conflict's dimensions were. A historian with a superb flair for storytelling, Creighton draws on memoirs, letters, diaries, and newspapers to bring to life the individuals at the heart of her narrative. The Colors of Courage is a stunningly fluid work of original history-one that redefines the Civil War's most remarkable battle.

    Thanks for taking the time to share your experiences with us. Sorry to hear about the Typekit issue. Hopefully they'll have it resolved at some point, or that you can find a workaround.

    This is great! I have used squarespace for building my blog at it has worked a treat. It's a really great price but I do find that there's not much variety for things.

      I can't wait for this book. I saw Mark speak at the Edgar Cayce Association for Research and Enlightenment in Virginia. He was simply amazing.

      Dear ViriniaI just finished reading the German edition of The Witch Hunter, and OMG, I am absolutely enthusiastic! I hope, I do not have to wait too long for the King Slayer as German edition. I want more! Thank you for writing such a great story!

    I would like to make websites for small companies. I have tested both Wix and Weebly. With Wix there might be a problem. It seems it is not possible to add editors? Am I right or not? I have my own user name and password but it is not a good idea to share my own password, because then my potential customers could use my credit card information to upgrade their website (my creditcard informations are availeble in my acoount settings).
