Signed and presented on the title page to "Len Rosa, I hope you like this small volume. Best Wishes, Wayne E. Motts, 17 Nov. 1994." An excellent work on Confederate General Lewis A. Armistead who was mortally wounded during Pickett's Charge, on July 3, 1863. This book was given to me by my friend Wayne back in the days when he was working at the Gettysburg National Military Park as a licensed battlefield guide. During the winter months, after the invasion of tourists had left, and our sleepy little town returned to its peaceful serenity, the monuments on the battlefield were always a vivid reminder to us of what momentous actions occurred here on these hallowed Pennsylvania farmlands in July 1863. Wayne and I use to spend hours talking about the whys and what ifs about the epic battle of Gettysburg. I remember the many years that I lived in Gettysburg with much fondness.
