Histria Books is pleased to announce the release of the paperback and eBook editions of Gettysburg by Morning by Nashville author Randy O’Brien. This book is published by Addison & Highsmith Publishers, an imprint of Histria Books dedicated to outstanding original works of fiction.

There are over 200 hundred documented cases of women who dressed as men to fight in the Civil War. Gettysburg by Morning is the first novel that explores this phenomenon from the battlefield to the White House. Gettysburg by Morning places you on the battlefield with a patriotic young woman fighting arm-in-arm with her fellow soldiers. Historical characters like Abraham Lincoln, Mary Todd Lincoln, George Custer, Oliver Wendell Holmes, and others make reading this story like walking hand-in-hand with history.

Kirkus Reviews says “This is a historically astute story that deftly highlights an element of the war largely neglected.” Midwest Book Review calls it “A deftly crafted historical novel by an author with a meticulous flair for narrative driven storytelling that is expertly combined with an eye for historical detail, Gettysburg by Morning is a riveting and entertaining read from cover to cover that will have a special appeal for Civil War buffs.”
