The Morristown & Erie Railroad dates back to April 1895, when construction began on the Whippany River Railroad in Whippany, New Jersey, at the site of the community's growing and prosperous paper mills. In October 1902, the Whippany River Railroad formed a second company, known as the Whippany & Passaic River Railroad, to extend the line seven more miles to connect with the Erie Railroad at Essex Fells. On August 28, 1903, the two railroads consolidated to form the Morristown & Erie Railroad Company. With more than 200 historic photographs, Rails through the Hanover Hills chronicles the activities of the Morristown & Erie Railroad from 1895 through the late 1960s. Discover rare images of the steam-powered locomotives that rolled along the banks of the winding Whippany River, trailed by carloads of coal, paper goods, and passengers, and meet the men who ran the trains, worked the stations and freight depots, repaired the track, and managed the company. View a variety of images from the railroad's early days as well as the Morristown & Erie of today, as it continues to move forward in a vastly changing world.

This pictorial overview of Hanover Township covers a nearly 70-year period from the late 1890s to 1965 and traces the development of the Village of Whippany and Cedar Knolls. It introduces us to a time when numerous paper mills employed a large contingent of the community's Irish-Catholic, Polish, and Italian populations; a time when as many as 16 local passenger and freight trains rolled through Hanover on the tracks of Morristown & Erie Railroad every day. In Hanover Township: Whippany and Cedar Knolls, we meet important community builders like the members of the McEwan family, whose industrial influence upon the region enabled Hanover to grow as it did. At one time the McEwans owned a vast majority of Hanover's real estate; they owned the Hanover, Stony Brook, and Eden Mills-three of the largest paper-producing mills in the northeast. And, of course, they owned the railroad that paper built.

In this companion to his celebrated earlier book, Gettysburg--The Second Day, Harry Pfanz provides the first definitive account of the fighting between the Army of the Potomac and Robert E. Lee's Army of Northern Virginia at Cemetery Hill and Culp's Hill--two of the most critical engagements fought at Gettysburg on 2 and 3 July 1863. Pfanz provides detailed tactical accounts of each stage of the contest and explores the interactions between--and decisions made by--generals on both sides. In particular, he illuminates Confederate lieutenant general Richard S. Ewell's controversial decision not to attack Cemetery Hill after the initial southern victory on 1 July. Pfanz also explores other salient features of the fighting, including the Confederate occupation of the town of Gettysburg, the skirmishing in the south end of town and in front of the hills, the use of breastworks on Culp's Hill, and the small but decisive fight between Union cavalry and the Stonewall Brigade.

The diarists and memorialists of the Civil War from both sides give copious information on their branches of service; infantry, foot artillery, cavalry, however, few who served in the horse artillery wrote of their experiences. Thankfully George Neese of the Confederate Horse Artillery left his diary entries to posterity affording the reader an intimate, honest look into this neglected arm. Neese enlisted in Chew’s battery in 1861, and would fight in that unit until his capture in 1864. He and his comrades fought under Jackson in the famed Valley campaign at Kernstown and Cedar Mountain; under Stuart he was engaged heavily at the Battle of Brandy Station. Later in the war under Imboden he saw action at the retreat from Gettysburg, the Wilderness and Spotslvania and the ‘Crater’. His capture and imprisonment at the notorious Point Lookout prison are particularly poignant reminders of the brutality of war. Highly recommended.
