A History and Guide to Civil War Shepherdstown: Victory and Defeat in West Virginia’s Oldest Town
by Nicholas A. Redding, soft cover, 144 pages, 62 photos, maps and illustrations.

Price $14.95, plus $3.05 shipping.

The fine water, magnificent scenery, delightful climate, the courteous and social manners of the people, the old Virginia mode of serving up meals, the quiet, quaint old-fashioned appearance of the town make it one of the most desirable summer resorts in this country. It is easily reached by rail, but difficult to get away from – not for want of conveyances – but on account of its spell that binds even a traveler to the place. – Shepherdstown Register, 1867. Shepherdstown’s quaint charm has drawn visitors to its tree-lined streets for hundreds of years.

The town has in fact, been “on the map” for most of American history. Yet, without a proper guide, the complex story of this place can be difficult to comprehend. This publication helps fill that void. This volume is intended for use as both a reference to Shepherdstown’s Civil War history and as a handheld guide for those setting out to tour the town in person.

The book includes a 9-Stop Self Guided Walking Tour; information for visiting Elmwood Cemetery; and a 3-Stop Battle of Shepherdstown Driving Tour with GPS coordinates. Sidebars with unique Shepherdstown information and stories are interspersed throughout the book.
