Long Description:

Christ Lutheran Church was used as a hospital during and after The Battle of Gettysburg, July 1863. This book tells some of the stories of the courage and sacrifices of the people who were at the hospital. It includes actual quotes from the journals and diaries of Sgt. Stearns, Nurse Ehler and others who were there at the church when it was a hospital. The book also contains chapters on the state of medical care at that time, this church’s history and the some of the nation’s expression of patriotism and deep pathos.

The book was published by Christ Evangelical Lutheran Church in 2009 and costs about $10. There is NO record of the book on Amazon Books. You can order the book from here: SOURCE. I am 99% sure this book may have been privately published, and as such, does not have an ISBN number.
