In my research of the Gettysburg area, I stumbled across a website for the Battle of Monterey Pass. The website is an excellent one, providing a ton of information about the battle that was part of the retreat from Gettysburg. The website was created by John Miller, who is the founder of the Monterey Pass Battlefield Association, an organization dedicated to the preservation and education of the battle. According to the website, Mr. Miller has dedicated the last 10 years to researching and preserving this little known battlefield, which reserves the honor of being the only battle fought in 4 counties within 2 states. Mr. Miller has a book available on the website that I just received and it is a very well written and very educational read! All of the proceeds from the book go toward the installation of an interpretational marker to be placed on the battlefield. Anyone who is interested in learning more about the Battle of Monterey Pass or Mr. Miller's book should check out the website at http://www.emmitsburg.net/montereypass
It will be well worth your time!
Good stuff Alicia thanks for sharing..I just finished "One Continious Fight" by Eric Wittenburg and J Petruzzi (Sorry for mispelling any names) and it really perked my interest in this little known about engagement...
Get Kent Masterman Brown's "Retreat from Gettysburg" for a thorough account not only of the Battle of Monterey Pass but also of the travails of Lee's other wagon train that went from Gettysburg to Williamsport by way of Greend wood and Greencastle. Great read.
I have corresponded with Miller and it is a good source for various locations in the Monterey area.
I grew up in Waynesboro and have a special interest in this engagement.
