About the Author
As the editor of the late, lamented Historic Traveler magazine, Tom Huntington developed a love for writing that merged stories from the past with journeys of discovery in the present. That was an approach he took with his first two books, Ben Franklin's Philadelphia and Pennsylvania Civil War Trails. In his latest offering, Huntington visits battlefields and museums and talks with historians, curators, park rangers and Civil War enthusiasts as he examines the life and reputation of the general who won the pivotal battle of the war. Huntington's many magazine articles have appeared in American Heritage, Smithsonian, Air & Space, British Heritage, America in WWII, Civil War Times, America's Civil War, Invention & Technology and many other publications. He lives in Camp Hill, Pennsylvania, with his wife, Beth Ann, and his children, Katie and Sam.
