This past Saturday was my birthday. I got the book At Gettysburg or What A Girl Saw and Heard Of the Battle by Mrs. Matilda (Tillie) Pierce Alleman. This is a great book and a very insightful eyewitness account of the battle of Gettysburg. As I have mentioned in previous posts Tillie was a 15 years old during the battle of Gettysburg. Twenty-five years after the battle in 1888, Tillie wrote her reminiscenses of the battle and events surrounding it. I will continue to read this book and hopefully pass on some of the information.
