PCN-TV Interview Tonight (Sunday, Nov. 1 at 9 pm)

Just a reminder that my hour-long interview on the "PA Books" Show of the PCN-TV network will air tonite at 9:00 pm. There are additional airings throughout the week. Those of you who are Pennsylvania or area subscribers will get it on your local channel, and anyone can stream the podcast of the interview on the channel's website (click on the PA Books section toward the bottom of the webpage) beginning tonight.
There are nearly four million subscribers to the channel, so I hope I don't get nervous - oh, wait, we taped it nearly two months ago :)
I hope you enjoy it. I really enjoyed talking about the new book, and Gettysburg and the Civil War in general. It was a lot of fun doing the interview and I hope it comes off alright.
UPDATE: The podcast of the interview should be available on the website beginning Tuesday or Wednesday.

  2. Thanks Tim! I didn't think I could watch it, but I watched it with my Dad at his house (we have DirecTV and don't get the channel). I guess it came out okay!

  3. JD,
    Great job last night on PCN-TV! I am currently reading The Complete Gettysburg guide and am following the action on July 2nd and 3rd. The guide has been great. I have been to Gettysburg at least once a year over the past 10 years, and I am even learning more about the battlefield thanks to your book. I will be visiting Gettysburg again in a little over 3 weeks and your book has me excited for my next visit. I definitely plan to search for some of the rock carvings, as well as spend some time in the town looking for the buildings with battle damage.
    Thanks again for the wonderful book!!!

  4. Thanks Scott and I'm glad you're enjoying the book - and that it's giving you new things to look for next time. That's what it's all about!
    Have fun looking for those carvings - some can be a little tough to locate, but look closely! Let me know how your trip went when you come back.
    Best,
    J.D.

  6. JD,
    Great interview..just finish listening to it.
    The book is great and have recommended it to many of my fellow co-workers that are into the battle.

    Going to Gettysburg this Thurs, and plan to use the book to visit both the fairfield and Hunterstown. On Saturday going on a tour sponsered by the friends (John Scott Adams Seminar) Its a tour with Wayne Motts. Really looking forward to this trip

  8. JD,
    Just finished watching the interview and I wanted to say I enjoyed it very much. The book is great and I have used it a couple of times already on the field. I also enjoyed your perspectives on Chamberlain and The Killer Angels. I, for one, feel that book did more positive things in generating interest in the ACW and Gettysburg than some would care to admit. For every visitor that wants to know where Buster Kilrain was shot there are many more who used that book as a springboard to serious Gettysburg study. And of course, I include your books in that study. Also wanted to say I enjoyed meeting you at the book signing with Steve during the MHO muster a few weeks back. Looking forward to Antietam !!!

  9. Thank you Bill, and great meeting you as well. I enjoyed the discussion about Killer Angels - although I made the point that it's not to be looked at as factual history, it has indeed motivated an entire generation to become interested in that history. I love the book and movie and always will.
    See you soon.
    J.D.
