    Hello everyone,

    I am brand new to the forums. I have never been much of a Civil War buff until I visited Gettysburg with my wife in October, 2013. I had visited the battlefield when I was a kid, I was 8 or 9 years old at the time. When my wife and I went in 2013, I was absolutely drawn into the history of the battle and the entire Civil War. Since then we have made 3 more visits and each time we toured the fields with an LBG, the most recent tour was on horse back.

    After our first visit in 2013 I have done nothing since but read all I can about Gettysburg and the Civil War in general. It is just astonishing on how drawn in I have become. I am also absolutely addicted to the Civil War Trust App's available for smart phones, another invaluable resource available. I am happy to join the forum to absorb all the information I can. I suspect I will be researching books and authors through postings in these forum's. This past Christmas I received of copy of Eric Wittenberg's book "The Devil's To Pay" about John Buford. I just finished reading it and it was, IMO, very interesting and enjoyable to read to say the least. I am so glad this work has been added to my collection.

    So, I look forward to reading and maybe participating in some of the conversations, I have seen a lot of interesting postings so far.

    That's my story for now.
    See you in the forums

    Welcome from Pittsburgh! Eric's book was a great read! My wife grabbed me a copy last year...truth be told, I'm not a huge cavalry fan, but I do like Buford.
