Free book giveaway: “Images of Modern America: Gettysburg National Military Park”

From time to time, the Mirror receives complimentary copies of books, and we like to share these with our readers.

This week, we are giving away “Images of Modern America: Gettysburg National Military Park,” by Penn State Altoona professor of history Jared Frederick. Frederick, who served as a seasonal park ranger at Gettysburg for five years, “interweaves the stories of the 1860s with the present to illustrate the relevance and value of this hallowed ground.”

To enter, please send your name, address and daytime telephone number to Cory Dobrowolsky, Altoona Mirror, 301 Cayuga Ave., Altoona, PA 16602, or email your information to cdobrowolsky@altoonamirror.com. Please be sure to write “Book Giveaway” on the envelope or in the email’s subject line.

To be eligible, all entries must be received by Thursday, Jan. 19. Only one entry per person.

The winner of last week’s book giveaway, “The Glory of Gable’s: Deluxe Edition” by Robert Jeschonek, was Dawn Leonard of Altoona, drawn from 111 entries.
