ABOUT THE BACHELDER PAPERS
John B. Bachelder was a painter, lithographer, and photographer, but is best known as the historian of the Battle of Gettysburg and the key driving force behind preserving much of the Gettysburg battlefield. Bachelder corresponded and met with hundreds of Union and also some Confederate soldiers, toured the field with many, and helped map where the units were on the field, and what they did there. Most of the older monuments on the field today are where they are today thanks to his years of unceasing labor.
His thousands of pages of reports, journal entries, notes, letters, etc. were in the New Hampshire Historical Society, where David and Audrey Ladd discovered them. They were transcribed, and originally published in a small run by Morningside Books in 1995. All letters are typeset for easy reading.
There is no source that comes more highly recommended for readers interested in the Gettysburg battle, or the Civil War in general.
