    Book details


In a personal tribute to the upcoming Gettysburg Address sesquicentennial Karl Rupp offers the reader a short narrative based on his grandmother's stories. The Maid of Gettysburg will appeal to anyone from 19 to 90 interested in the cultural transition that took place over the past 50 years. Rupp draws from a rich palette of the world's literature to create a drama that reads like a screenplay. The author creates a series of impressionistic scenes, inviting the reader's mind to complete each picture. With one eye on William James and the other on William Golding, Rupp's tale seeks to reconcile the relationship between skeptics and believers. The author delicately wanders over a dangerous 'no man's land' between today's liberal and conservative political armies. Whether you prefer the writings of E.O. Wilson or C.S. Lewis The Maid of Gettysburg will resonate with both perspectives. It can be read as a simple story of three daughters from three generations of a poor Gettysburg family or it can serve to entertain any college student up to the challenge of playing 'Where's Waldo' as in Ralph Waldo Emerson. Those interested in political science will gain an understanding of how the nation transitioned from Lincoln's concept of an ideal form of government to the one we have today. And lastly, for the rare reader with very broad interests, the Preface may offer fresh insight into the global gender gap dilemma. About the author K.D. Rupp has served in the military for over 35 years. He started wandering the Gettysburg battlefield as a young child and continues to pay his respects there from time to time. He is the father of three daughters. Mindful of how actions may be misinterpreted the author wants to avoid any appearance of improper endorsement of a particular political party, candidate, cause, or issue and consequently uses a pseudonym.
