“I tried another self-publishing firm before Outskirts and it did not go well. After studying the market, I chose Outskirts based on many positive recommendations. I have been very pleased with my experience with Outskirts Press. The finished product was better then I imagined. If I write another book, I will opt for Outskirts.”

Many people who have spent time at the Gettysburg battlefield have felt a presence, a force that stirs within. Regimental monuments surround the visitor, and each monument has a unique story. Visitors feel a sense of awe at the number of men who fought here-not to conquer land, but to defeat an injustice. What They Endured; What They Wrought provides a brief history of some of these regiments and how they fared in the famous battle. Visitors of the Gettysburg battlefield-whether first-timers or seasoned sojourners-will find the book a useful reference to bring this period of history to life. The author will donate a dollar from each book sold to the Gettysburg Foundation to help preserve this national treasure.
