Southern Oasis

Southern Oasis

"Southern Oasis at Gettysburg" is a historical fiction account of the northernmost Confederate hospital in the Civil War. It is the story of Major General Edward Johnson's division of the Army of Northern Virginia. The book documents their march to Gettysburg, their encampment at the Daniel Lady Farm including their arrival the evening of the first day of battle on July 1 and their use of the farmhouse and barn as hospitals after the three-day battle for the division's casualties that occurred in fighting at nearby Culp's Hill. 

The last part of the book tells what happeed to each person mentioned with footnotes telling what happened to each of them post Gettysburg. 

The Daniel Lady Farm is now owned and operated by the Gettysburg Battlefield Preservation Association and is open on weekends to the public from mid-April through mid-November for educational programs. A museum is planned on the site for the future. 

The book is autographed by the author as well.
