Booknotes: Gettysburg National Military Park

New Arrival:
Gettysburg National Military Park by Jared Frederick (Arcadia Pub, 2016).

This pictorial history of GNMP is part of Arcadia's Images of Modern America series. "Exploring the fascinating issues of historical memory, preservation, and popular culture," the book uses both B&W and color photography to trace the ongoing evolution of the park, from the post-WW2 boom in historical tourism to today.
