About: Our Great American Heritage

Battle of Gettysburg.
Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, July 2, 1863

Searching for the truth in history is many times exciting and worthwhile. As a researcher, you may not always like what you find, but by separating fact from fiction lies the promise of historical accuracy and the correct interpretation of the past. Our Great American Heritage is about digging beneath the surface and looking for the additional pieces of the story; those pieces that expand our understanding about history. That is the goal of my website.
