SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. - Shepherd University's George Tyler Moore Center for the Study of the Civil War will sponsor a book signing on Oct. 19 at 7 p.m. in the Civil War Center on German Street.
Dennis W. Brandt, author of "From Home Guards to Heroes: The 87th Pennsylvania and its Civil War Community" will be on hand to answer questions and autograph copies of his book.
Light refreshments will be served.
Brandt is a former student in Mark A. Snell's Civil War research course and has attended several of the Center's Civil War seminars. "From Home Guards to Heroes," his first work, details a Civil War regiment in unprecedented human detail. Snell, director of the George Tyler Moore Center for the Study of the Civil War and author of the book's foreword, says of Brandt's work, "Here is a regimental history that will set the standard for others to follow."
