The Maid of Gettysburg
The Maid of Gettysburg


In a personal tribute to the upcoming Gettysburg Address sesquicentennial Karl Rupp offers the reader a short narrative based on his grandmother’s stories.

Rupp draws from a rich palette of the world’s literature to create a drama that reads like a screenplay.
