    I picked this book up in the gift shop at the Gettysburg National Park after visiting the Evergreen Cemetery first, which is the wrong way to go about it The book includes a pullout map, which would have been handy to have as I poked around Evergreen The map would have guided us to the people profiled in the book I would have liked to look at their photographs, helpfully included beside their biographies, as I stood before their monuments As it was, I enjoyed the beautiful stones in Evergree I picked this book up in the gift shop at the Gettysburg National Park after visiting the Evergreen Cemetery first, which is the wrong way to go about it The book includes a pullout map, which would have been handy to have as I poked around Evergreen The map would have guided us to the people profiled in the book I would have liked to look at their photographs, helpfully included beside their biographies, as I stood before their monuments As it was, I enjoyed the beautiful stones in Evergreen without appreciating the history that lies beneath them at least, I didn t appreciate it until I read this book.Written by the current superintendent of the cemetery who has lived in the cemetery s gatehouse since 1976 , the book briefly explores the history of the association that founded Evergreen, then glances at the wildlife that has come to dwell there After that, it dives into the town s founding fathers and moves quickly to Gettysburg s defining moments in July 1863, when the Confederate Army came to call My favorite section quotes the memoir of Elizabeth C Thorn, who served as caretaker and gravedigger after the Battle of Gettysburg was done.All in all, this is an enjoyable little book If it has any flaws, it s that it looks as if it was designed at home Large portions of the text are boldface, except where portions are quoted from other sources The sketch on the cover doesn t do justice to the beautiful, historic brick gatehouse Despite those elements, the interior photographs are clear and the text is polished Perhaps when a second edition is published, the book design will be updated, too
