The Wheatfield Book Release

A special first edition printing of The Wheatfield, a new Gettysburg-inspired book for young learners, written by acclaimed stage and screen actor, playwright and author Stephen Lang, will be on sale, exclusively at the Museum Bookstore inside the Gettysburg National Military Park Museum & Visitor Center.

Featuring Lang’s poetic writing and powerful illustrations by the young artists The Bros. Smith (Alex and Adrian), the book is aimed to delight readers young and old. A story of sacrifice, courage and selflessness, Lang’s first book The Wheatfield tells of Union Soldier and Medal of Honor awardee, James Jackson Purman, as he vividly recalls the Battle of Gettysburg and his fateful encounters with friends and foe. Returning to Gettysburg 50 years after the battle, Purman and other battle-weary Civil War veterans gather in harmony, stripping away their former allegiances to north and south in hopes of peaceful fellowship.

The Gettysburg Foundation is pleased to partner with Lang to offer The Wheatfield at the Museum Bookstore in time for holiday gift buying. The Gettysburg National Military Park Museum & Visitor Center.

A portion of the proceeds from sales of the book benefits the education and preservation mission of the Gettysburg Foundation.
