What People are Saying about Spies in Disguise at Gettysburg
“I found this book entertaining, easy and fun to read. It incorporates life changing principles that will make each person better regardless of ‘our age’. Let’s go to Gettysburg. Enjoy your trip.”
Leon Farnsworth, Educator, veteran, and descendant of Brigadier General Elon Farnsworth
“As a history teacher who has taken many groups of students to Gettysburg, and an avid reader of mysteries, I found Mary Morgan’s book to be delightful. The use of the disappearance of valuable items during a contest of old fashioned games between school children of different states was both suspenseful and full of the kind of tidbits of information that will capture the attention of young readers.”
Laurel Iversen, U.S. History Teacher
