Rebels In The Front Yard


Liberty Augusta Hollinger was a sixteen-year old girl living in Gettysburg when the greatest battle ever fought on the North American continent erupted around her. With courage and strength, she dealt with the trials of occupation by the invading Confederate army. In her own front yard she was a witness to the fears of the South's greatest general, Robert E. Lee. For three days she lived with the horror of the battle. After the armies departed she gave herself to the task of caring for the wounded they left behind. Through Liberty's first hand accounts, follow her experiences during the battle, Lincoln's Gettysburg Address, and finally, the fiftieth Reunion of the Blue and Gray at Gettysburg. David Cleutz is a direct descendant of Jacob and Liberty Augusta Hollinger Clutz. David has put many hours of research into this non-fiction work. Some of these eyewitness accounts have never been published before.
