    1. Cooper Wingert did an impressive job detailing the Confederate approach on Harrisburg during the Gettysburg campaign. There were a lot of great details pulled from various sources to create this book, and it opens the door to increased understanding of the battle and of Pennsylvania history.


    2. Written by a high school student. I have to say I'm impressed. Good use of primary sources and some pretty decent anecdotes relevant to his topic. Now if I could get my students to write research papers like this I'm a "map-Nazi", always could use more.
