We had a successful launch of Searching for George Gordon Meade: The Forgotten Victor of Gettysburg. It took place at the National Civil War Museum in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, on February 16, 2013. Author Tom Huntington (that’s me) signed copies of the book in the museum atrium from 10 a.m. until noon, for a large and enthusiastic crowd. Before the signing, Huntington (me again) did a talk for museum members on the Cast of Characters that appear in the book. Switching into the first person, I want to say what a great time I had at the event and I’d like to express my thanks to Wayne Motts and the museum staff for making it possible. Thanks also to Jim Schmick of Civil War and More in Mechanicsburg for ably handling the retail end. And to my wife, Beth Ann, for all her  support and for providing a great cake (above). And, of course, thanks to everyone who showed up, including family and friends.

Last week I recorded a program with Brian Lockman for the Pennsylvania Cable Network (PCN)’s PA Books show. It should air sometime in March. Watch this blog and the Searching for George Gordon Meade Facebook page for details as they become available.
