John W. Schildt, author of the popular book Roads to Gettysburg, will close the National Museum’s Fifth Annual Summer Lecture Series. The poetic speaker will speak on the rumble of wagons, the creaking of leather, the braying of donkeys; armies on the march, thirst and fatigue and then the downpours. He’ll speak on the epic marches of the blue and gray on the roads to Gettysburg from the banks of the Rappahannock to the fields of Pennsylvania. For the Army of the Potomac, all roads led through Frederick County as the men in blue traveled the roads to Gettysburg in June 1863. Mr. Schildt is a certified Antietam Battlefield Guide and frequent lecturer. His book, Roads to Gettysburg has been cited as one of the top ten Gettysburg books on several Civil War related websites and blogs.
