Gettysburg Walks With Author Bruce E. Mowday

        Author Bruce E. Mowday is offering walks in Gettysburg during the summer of 2021. Bruce has authored three books on the 1863 Civil War battle that saved the Union.

“After posting on social media that I led one group at Gettysburg, I found many others are interested in taking a personal tour of the historic land,” Mowday said. “I have open days this summer and I’d like to schedule some walks.

Mowday’s three books are: Pickett’s Charge: The Untold Story; J. Howard Wert’s Gettysburg and Emotional Gettysburg.

“Each book is unique,” Mowday said. “I had not at first thought about writing a book on Gettysburg. The Pickett’s Charge book came about when I realized no book looked at the Union defenders of the Confederate charge. The Wert family has the largest collection of Gettysburg artifacts, including the podium used by Lincoln during his famous address. I teamed with wonderful artist Karl J. Kuerner to do Emotional Gettysburg. Karl created 20 original works of art and I did essays to go with the paintings. Readers have said we have redefined Gettysburg.”

Mowday will tailor walks to the wishes of those participating. Mowday will meet participants outside the National Park’s Visitors’ Center. A $20 per person fee will be charged for a four-hour walk with a minimum of $100. Fees for longer events will be charged. Also, artist Karl J. Kuerner will be available for some of the days.

Those taking part in the walks will also receive a 15 percent discount on any of Mowday’s books purchased. All of the books are listed on Mowday’s website, www.mowday.com. To schedule a walk, contact Mowday at mowday@mowday.com.

“This is a wonderful way to spend a day at a historic site,” Mowday said.
