U.S. Congressman Joe Pitts (R- PA) accepts my new book!

march2009-023

U.S. Congressman Joe Pitts (R – PA) and Pennsylvania author and wargamer  Scott L. Mingus Sr. met on March 9 to discuss the Civil War in Lancaster and York counties.  Here, the writer (right) presents Congressman Pitts with a personalized copy of Flames Beyond Gettysburg: The Gordon Expedition, June 1863. Pitts is a long-time supporter of Lancaster-area historical venues and in particular has been interested in the burning of the Columbia-Wrightsville Bridge during the American Civil War.

HMGS-East’s annual Historicon and Cold Wars conventions take place within Pitts’ 16th Congressional District. Two of Mingus’s children graduated from Lancaster County colleges (Millersville University and Elizabethtown College), and Professor Scott L. Mingus, Jr. teaches World History at Harrisburg Community College’s Lancaster regional campus.
