Annotated Bibliography

Since full publishing information is not needed with the use of the internet, I will only provide Title and Author for each entry. If you have any difficultly locating any of these books, drop me a line and I will fix you up with more details. (This page will be frequently updated until this notice disappears.)

This is the definitive history of the Battle of Hanover, including the latest research, written by a licensed Gettysburg Battlefield Guide. Outstanding in every way.



Prelude to Gettysburg: Encounter at Hanover, by the Hanover Chamber of Commerce (Prepared by a committee), 1962

This was a primary source for this book. It contains a wealth of anecdotal information and rare historical photographs. (See most of them in the photo gallery of this website.) My grandfather, C. Homer Meredith, was a contributor to this book, as was my neighbor, Harry Stonesifer, a WWI veteran and grandson of a Civil War veteran from Hanover. The book may be difficult to find. I am currently working with the copyright holder, the Hanover Chamber of Commerce, to publish an updated second edition.
