History teacher Nathan Greene’s plans for his students to hear Abraham Lincoln present his Gettysburg Address go awry when two ghostly historians secretly change the plans. Instead, the time-traveling classroom portable lands just before dawn on July 1, 1863, the first day of the Battle of Gettysburg. Greene and his students, Victor, Minerva and Bette, find themselves marooned in the tiny Pennsylvania town at the beginning of the pivotal battle of the Civil War.

The intrepid group of time travelers must survive the battle and its aftermath until the classroom portable returns to rescue them. In the ensuing weeks, as they witness historic events, they also work as nurses, grave-diggers, and more—and find themselves in the midst of a war that doesn’t just divide the country, but also their team. Victor soon encounters legendary notables such as Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain and Confederate General George Pickett, while Bette and Minerva cross paths with Union General George Meade, Minerva meets noted Gettysburg diarist Sarah Broadhead, and Mr. Greene overhears a conversation between General Lee and General Longstreet regarding battle tactics.

Can the teacher and his students make it through one of the most dangerous times in U.S. history to hear Lincoln’s famous speech? And, more importantly…can they make it safely home to their own time?

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
