HARRISBURG, March 12 -- While many people will be thinking of the "Blarney Stone" on St. Patrick's Day, state Rep. Harry Readshaw, D-Allegheny, will be thinking of granite, marble and bronze. Readshaw will join the co-author of the book "Guide to Pennsylvania Troops at Gettysburg" at two book signings in the Harrisburg area that day to raise money to preserve the Pennsylvania monuments at Gettysburg. In recognition of Readshaw's effort to get private funding for monuments, co-authors Richard Rollins and David Shultz of California asked him to pen the preface for the new edition and pledged $1 from the sale of each book to the Pennsylvania Gettysburg Monuments Project.

To formally kick off the sale of the book, Readshaw and Shultz will hold two book-signing events Wednesday. The first will be from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the B.Dalton Bookseller in Strawberry Square in Harrisburg. From 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., the two will sign books at the B.Dalton Bookseller in the Camp Hill Shopping Center.

In addition, signed copies of the book will be at a booth available Saturday, March 20 at the annual Civil War Expo at the state Farm Show Building in Harrisburg. The show, sponsored by the Camp Curtin Historical Society, runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

"Guide to Pennsylvania Troops at Gettysburg" is published by Stackpole Books of Mechanicsburg, Pa. The price is $17.95.  Note:  this book has just gone out of print and is unavailable.  We will again sell it when it comes back into print.
