We are most pleased to have Dan Welch, co-author of “The Last Road North: A Guide to the Gettysburg Campaign, 1863” come to Wooster for our Sep. 19 WC CWRT program. Welch will explore how the two armies “cat-and-moused” their way across Virginia, Maryland, and Pennsylvania in the weeks before the battle. Welch’s book, based on the Civil War Trails, and is packed with dozens of lesser-known sites related to the Gettysburg Campaign. His book offers the ultimate Civil War road trip.

He earned his M.A. in military history with a Civil War Era concentration at American Military University. Welch has also studied under the tutelage of Dr. Allen C. Guelzo as part of the Gettysburg Semester at Gettysburg College. He currently resides with his wife, Sarah, in Boardman, Ohio
