Gettysburg and It Came From The Video Isle!

Bruce E. Mowday, G. Craig Caba and Schiffer Books present ‘J. Howard Wert’s Gettysburg A Collection Of The Relics From The Civil War’ book.
During the Civil War J. Howard Wert assisted the Union force during the Battle of Gettysburg.

As the battle raged and during its aftermath he collected and cataloged relics from the battle including weapons, furniture, uniforms, documents and other items to preserve for posterity.

For years after the conflict he continued to collect and catalog items eventually assembling the most impressive collection of memorabilia from that bloody battle.

The new book showcases the various items via color photographs and includes text about Wert, the battle and the Civil War.

It’s an engrossing and fascinating trek back in time that provides readers with a first-hand look at the battle that shaped the outcome of the Civil War.

Certainly not as old or historical as Gettysburg but important nonetheless is another book about history.

Long before the DVD or Blu-ray disc, the internet, Netflix or social media one small movie production company brought movie directly to the viewer n their home, bypassing the movie theaters.

Full Moon Features in the 1990s was the king of B-movies of sci-fi, fantasy and horror.

Dave Jay, William S Wilson and Torsten Dewi take you ‘Inside Charles Band’s Full Moon Entertainment Studio’ in 'It Came From The Video Isle!’.

The book tracks the history of the company from its early 1980s drive-in theater days, its cast and crew and also includes exclusive interviews.

Full movie synopses, behind-the-scenes tidbits and full color photos highlight the book that delves into the intriguing world of the B-movie as only Full Moon could do.

Cult movie enthusiasts will love the in-depth look at an industry giant in its heyday.
