 -----
John Bachelder was contracted to use his research and write a history of the Battle of Gettysburg. It took some time, and (if you want the full story, Eric Wittenberg and Ms. Audrey Ladd write extensively about it in this new reprint). It sat unpublished for more than a century. 

Like The Bachelder Papers, Audrey and her late husband David found this manuscript, edited it, and it was published by Morningside in 1997--once again in a very small run. It is more than 800 pages. It incorporates his own thoughts, letters, many official reports, and more.
 
Bob Younger of Morningside, the original publisher, once called it "the unofficial fourth volume of the set." So . . . we decided to do something pretty cool. Keep reading:
 
SAVAS BEATIE ENHANCEMENTS

1. The old version had a very plain "meh" dust jacket. Because this is "the unofficial fourth volume of the set," it will be bound EXACTLY the same as "The Black and Gold Edition!" If you have the three-volume Bachelder Papers, this can be shelved right next to it. :)  
 
2. This set had the 7 (seven) black and white oversize Bachelder Maps in various sizes mostly as fold-outs. The problem was that shrunk down, they were essentially useless because the detail was so small it could not be seen without a magnifying glass. We will add a couple overall maps, but . . . we are reprinting the oversize maps so email your interest in them, and we will keep you informed on their progress. We will keep them as low in price as possible!

3. New Foreword by award-winning author Eric J. Wittenberg to keep the consistency in this set!
